Twins!!

At the request of the owner of the twin to my A-F, he wanted to see the two together here.

He may identify himself if he so desires.

Will try to keep this down to a few pics, but it really is hard to do.

In honor of Memorial Day and our brothers in arms....

You guys are just testing me to see if I can make them the same by all free hand grinding. With all possible respect to Memorial Day, I salute all who both served and serve. I will do so by spending the weekend building something to be given to the Special Warfare Museum as discussed with Reaper..

Hell, Bill, I just left them in the same room last night, and now we have four!

They MUST be SF Knives. Or maybe we had a wee too much to drink.

Hmm....

Great image for testing to see if the grinds match both sides! Must be the SF explanation, other one isn't possible.

Those are simply a masterpiece of design and workmanship. Incredible photography also, Sir.

Mr. Harsey I now see why your work is so revered and in demand. It is very difficult to do to steel what you have done, by hand.

I have never seen anything like it.

Almost done.

He is a master of his craft isn't he?

I wish that I could make something that perfect and stamp my name on it.

You are very kind, my brother.

One last pic, in memory of the boys who fell in America's bloodiest conflict.
