The rehandles all look great. Your correct that he still does stunning work. Not being an acrylic fan, for the most part, I can understand having them changed out. When Donnie collected seahorses we did the same thing. The G10 did nothing for me but the rams horn replacement did LOL.
Good work on making your collections what you want it to be !
That's impressive at age 80. It's great that he is still pursuing a passion though.
I"ll be blessed just to bend over & tie my shoes at that age.
Thanks Tim, Herman has been a huge influence on my knife collection. It's just boggles my mind that at 80 he is still turning out work like this.
#64 NORTHFIELD BABYLON HILL by HERMAN WILLIAMS
Wow, that's some nice file work.
I posted some pics but thought I'd put them here as well. I had 3 Ben Hogans that I thought could be improved. The Primitive bone was not to my liking at all...If If it's not going to be dyed them I like it bleached. The Black Gold was just to dark of an acrylic...didn't set it of in my display at all and it had a spear blade. Nothing wrong with sear blades, just don't like them on my Ben Hogans...I already had one and that's enough. The Red River acrylic was too dark as well. These 3 knives fell into that group of not really knowing if you'll like them until you get to hold them. I sent them to Herman Williams to be re-handled. Plus a little file work on one.
Andy, i am on the tablet but tomorrow i will get a good look!
