NOW ! FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.
in our Covent Garden workshop.
It was just a regular day, when a good friend
from New York popped in to say Hi!
I ve known Pierre for many years.
We traded guitars and amps since the 80's.
Anyway , Pierre is looking at the iems on my bench
when he spots a knife that I had started
I had a plain black blade and had started to carve a
handle for it.
As it was just a piece I was "messing around" with
It was far from being finished.
" I know someone who would love this"
I knew who he meant of course!
I explain this was just a rough idea but I could
make a "proper" knife.
So I designed a blade and contacted Wilkinson swords
to make a custom blade for me.
It took me about a year to carve the handle....
My idea was,,,
Eventually I collected the blade and box from Wilkinson swords
and spend a few more hours assembling the piece.
