',', Phoenix array,',' by HundredHands ',', Phoenix array,',' by HundredHands
I was in a terrible accident last year. My wife and I were riding bikes when a car came at us and took me out. She dodged it thank goodness. I took a bunch of damage to my right leg and lost lots of blood. Lots of surgery followed. The last 13 months have been consumed by physical therapy so now I can stand again, bend my leg and even walk. My wife and I used to run marathons and stuff, now I can barely run a mile but even that's like a miracle. Still have a long way to go but it's amazing what you can come back from.
I got my hands on some sweet Mike Norris Damascus and made this thing during the earlier stages of my recovery. I'm calling it The Phoenix.

Blade length: 4.6"
Overall length: 10.5"

Blade: Stainless Damascus
Bolster: 440 stainless steel

Scale: Stabilized Buckeye

Glad you are making a good recovery! Beautiful piece. I love the upwards piece at the end of the handle!

Thanks! I actually had to remake that part because of a mistake I made with part of the spring, but when I made the new part I added that little flourish. Blessing is disguise!

Thanks for your input&support!
