This is the finished product of a work in progress thread I did recently.

In the spirit of the WIP thread we have this first picture, just kinda shows my lighting setup. What you don't see is the big white piece of posterboard that usually ends up balanced or held in some oddball spot to bounce the light where I want it.

First we have the knife all by itself

I REALLY like how this shot came out. I've never really tried to use props before but I decided to go for it here and I'm pleased.

Best shot I had showing the sheath, don't mind the bit of yellow poster hanger stuff, I use balls of that to position the blade where I want it.

Mr. Fowler:

While my knife appreciation tends toward a more simple or basic knife, the knife you have crafted is a work of art! To be appreciated.

I see something about being an apprentice?
How can that be with the skill you have?

You have blended the lines in that blade, handle, pommel, so artfully that
I bet you will soon have buyers that will pay a price commensurate with such quality.

I personally would use that knife, and enjoy it all the while, but I know many collectors will desire it.

That's a beauty! A fine American made knife like that deserves something better than that foreign swill :D It deserves a fine bourbon!

Seriously, you should be very proud. It is a true work of art. I love the temper line.

Very nice. I am not normally a fan of stag but you really pulled off a modern look well with the stag! Nice pics too.

Very beautiful work! I especially appreciated the hammon and the fitting of the handle furniture! A great mix of metals and stag, looks like it was meant to be.

You should be very proud. Many have the ability, but very very few have the vision, patience and attention to detail you've shown!

Nice work Stephen. You coming up for the youth hammer-in or Harley's? Oh, and bring the bottle with you.

Very nice! If I get my stimulus check for 200$ can I buy it???

That there just might make a down payment on it. ;)
