Click gere to view: Picture 1, Picture 2, Picture 3, Picture 4, Picture 5 Take a look at the truly excellent blades: Master Don Miller, a Cherokee, trained from forge to power metallurgy was reared in Taipei, Taiwan. He taught Shaolin Kung Fu in the US over forty years. Master is his title . His students, [c.1969] wanted martial arts weapons and knives like his personal display, but signed. Hence the 'master don' trademark.  His [c.1974] patented formula CMT3 [Cr - Mo - W alloy] & unique ARC grind gives flexibility to this metal that slices steel. Competitively priced, any profile or sheath design. Catalog: email
