    Picked this up Saturday lunchtime. Astounded that this was still on the table, considering the "bargain basement" price! The knife was entered into the judging under the "Hunting Knife" category, a category with a fixed maximum price. Under normal circumstances, this would probably set you back double the price or more.

    Andrew Bloomfield has come up leaps and bounds in a relatively short time, and I've been wanting to add one of his creations to my collection. This one is a prime example of his current work.

    Integral Damascus of the maker's own forging, key-hole handle construction. I can't remember the timber, but it's drop-dead gorgeous and the knife just melts into my hand with a solid heft to it (without being too heavy).

    You are a lucky man Mike, I got to have a bit of a fondle of that one during the judging and was super impressed with it! The keyhole fitting is absolutely perfect!!!

    Hey Poleaxe,
    Feedback is always important and appreciated, whether its good or bad. Its not easy to run these shows and regardless of how hard you try you will never get everything right for everyone, although the show committee do try their best.
    Thanks for taking the time to comment.
