I am proud to tell, my knife “Explosion” has been chosen to be on the 2019 cover of this legendary knife magazine.

Unexpected, and a great honor.

The book is available now, but the knife is sold to a US collector..


Here is what they write about my knife:

The two knives on the cover represent a few of the newest trends in knives….

Another hot segment represented is small fixed blades or hideaway knives, and in this case showcasing a trendy mammoth tooth handle.

The keenly shaped full-tang RWL-34 fixed blade by Michael West at right parades a 10,000-plus-year-old mammoth molar root grip that’s set in Argentum silver.

There seems to be no limit to the knife styles, materials or imaginations of the makers. Phenomenal!
