Hello! It looks like I'm the new guy here. My name is Tim Zowada I have been making custom knives professionally since 1982. I specialize in forged blades, Damascus steel and home smelted bloomery steel. I have known Jim Kelso for a very long time. I have always been captivated by his work. I have finally come to the place where I can start experimenting with carving and engraving. I have a lot to learn. But, I can see there is a lot of great information on this forum.

Here is my first attempt at this sort of work:

Blade: Home smelted Timahagane and meteorite with pine branch engraving. Scales: Mammoth ivory with Copper pine cone.

I look forward to all the opportunities here. If anyone ever needs help with forging steel, please don't hesitate to ask.

Thank you,

Tim Zowada

Hello Tim,

Your first attempt is a very elegant one.  Your choice to create an inset for the engraved copper works visually as well as functionally, making a sleek profile that lays flat.  

Welcome!
