Antler Carving & Knives
« on: June 30, 2004, 06:50:00 PM »
I'm not sure if this is a product review or not but I'd guess it is. It is unsolicited and just wanted to let folks know about it anyway. A short time ago, I won the bid (e-bay) on a small, handcarved antler, amulet/necklace with an arrow head carved in/on it . I forwarded his name, etc. to our own Barb with the idea he might have "stuff" leftover in his work that she could use on her quivers. Turned out she and he had already dealt on some of his knives and things. They both said very complimentary things about each other's work to me. Anyway I received the little piece (shown with a quarter, it was not as wide but a little taller than the coin) a few days ago and have been wearing it since. It came on a rolled rawhide loop. It is really a beautiful piece of work with a nice traditional look and touch and signed by the artist. The "bladesmith" is Matt Lesniewski of M.L. Knives and I'm sure some of you at least know of him already. He does have a web site.
