Venom by Logan-Pearce Venom by Logan-Pearce
You should totally like my Facebook! Why you ask? So I can become super awesome, duh.

Oh and so you can have a chance to win some cool knives in November. :D Free stuff and me taking over the world? What's not to like about that?!?!


Venom:

I'll basically say the same thing I said on my facebook, because it was all true. I loved the onyx w/gold veined handle material. Although carving it was...not fun. I was thinking I would take a break from my normal full metal carving or all wood, as both have their own pros and cons when carving by hand. All of which are usually me cursing the walls around me.

Sadly, I found this handle material to be my new enemy. Looking back, I think I should have used a different type of handle material with this carving.

I like to think that my photography is getting better. But I attempted many times to capture the carving, but I really couldn't. I felt a little bad when sending this to Chuck, because I figured he would have a hard time as well. Well not nearly as hard of a time as I did, but you know.

As always, I do my best to match the damascus with the handle material. The gold veins rock, but they take away from the work I put into carving it. I didn't want them to stand out as much as my usual carving does, but you know how I am. I like to have my cake and eat it too.

I love cake.

Ladies and Gentlemen, it's a knife!

Alright, lets get nitty gritty about this. The Damascus is much better than the normal random pattern seen, so props to you for the 500+ layers of steel that you've folded. It looks quality, but since we're on the internet, I can't really tell quality, but it looks sound as anything. The drop point is a little far back for my tastes, but the grind is beautiful. I like a little more spine to play with, is all. The serration is a little iffy-looking, but it kind of adds to the grittiness of the blade. Which makes it look cool.

Now, the handle. Onyx and gold vein. You carved onyx with gold vein. You deserve some sort of a award for patience. It looks fantastic AND ergonomic, which is something rather hard to come by in the knife world. The metal between the blade and handle is a little distracting, like a tie that overshadows the rest of the outfit. It's manageable to the eye, but when you have gold and black mixed with a Damascus blade, try to keep with that wonderfully seductive dark tone.

Other than that, I, as a Damascus fancier, really enjoy this knife as a whole. The patterns aren't as raised looking as what I've seen before of your work, but it's pretty and strong, none the less. A wonderful vision and most likely immaculate technique.

First off, this knife is as epic as the rest of *Logan-Pearce's gallery. The craftsmanship shows, even through a picture on a website. The vicious beauty of the blade evokes a sense of fright, and love; all in one glance. The handle is like nothing I've ever seen before; which is a statement that shouldn't be taken lightly, seeing as how I have 500 knives in my collection. It looks like a thunder storm going on in your hand. The flowing lines of the piece evoke a true spirit of adventure within me. I really don't now how to describe it otherwise. Well done Logan, well done.

This is beautiful! And the handle is just like the marble we looked at! I like it, and I dont think it takes away from the Damascus, I think that it looks good with it anyway, It would look good with a plain blade as well, but the damascus gives it something a little extra you know. And the carving was worth it, no matter how much you hated it.
