Absolutely brilliant design and execution! Thanks for the animation, I was uncertain as to how the knife folded into the sheath.

Eveni,

While beautifully designed and crafted, your piece still retains that hand wrought look that is perfect for an objet d'art related to the Arthurian legend. :tiphat:
