',', The Phoenix ,',' by HundredHands ',', The Phoenix ,',' 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"

That's some awesome blade geometry. It has an elven vibe to it and I like it! Damascus is generally too ornate for my taste, but it suits this blade perfectly.

Awesome artwork! The Phoenix is one of the coolest designs of a knife I've seen in a long time.

Thank you very much, it was tricky on account of it actually being quite small.
