Default Alain Lovenberg / Karl-Heinz Koob integral sub-hilt knife

Here's the latest work of Alain Lovenberg on a Karl-Heinz Koob full integral subhilt knife. About 140 hours for engraving the knife and modeling the 22K gold lizard (and the butterfly) + around 200 hours for the knife.

Steel is CPM420V (Lovenberg said "never ever again")

This knife was made by my German friend Karl-Heinz Koob.
On some occasions when we met in Wetzlar/Germany i saw this work *growing*
Really stunning work from both!


Bracco from NL

W.O.W!!!!!
That is incredible!
It deserves to be in a museum as an example of the finest knife making and engraving.
