Description: This unique knife by Jeff Driscoll evokes a musical theme with a Mattias Styrefors blade as the focal point. Mattias' blade is inspiring in the depth of its complexity and provides a perfect center for the knife to revolve around. With well over 100 hours of work, this masterpiece is an amazing debut on BladeGallery.com. Jeff's background as a musician is clear, in his detailed carving of the scrolls on the handle and sheath. The "f-holes" on the sheath evoke the f-holes on a violin, and reveal the blade when inserted into the sheath. When inserted into the sheath, the knife and sheath together also repeat the f-hole theme. The leather has been tooled with a modified version of "Study War No More" (Pete Seeger). Excellent fit and finish on a very inspired work of art!
