SR Johnson Big Bear engraved by Barry Lee Hands for Carlos Lopez

Many years ago, Steve Lindsay hooked me up with S R Johnson working on a knife for David Darom.
That has led to a series of colabs between SRJ and I including our most recent and spectacular for Carl Lopez.
Below is a series of pics showing some of the design work and execution of the installation of the gold and diamonds.
for more info please go to:
