Starting another sergeknives.com collaboration on a sweet bronze Bean knife scale, this time with a Japanese-style Koi and Waves theme. There will be a few dots of gold, and a gold koi eye.

Sculpting the waves and the koi. It’s starting to look like something now!

sergeknives.com “Koi and Waves” Bean knife scale is finished! Back to Serge on Monday for assembly, I can’t wait to see how the whole package turns out… Both signatures on the backside, ’cause I couldn’t bear to interfere with the front…

Thanks for looking!
