Richard Tesarik - B&W Variation
This beautiful work of art is from Richard Tesarik. This BW Variation (or Black and White Variation) is a follow on to an earlier piece named Black and White. Richard is a part time maker from Brno in the Czech Republic. I saw my first Tesarik knife at the ECCKS show in September 2014 and immediately bought it, I am a huge fan of his work. This liner locking knife features a hand sculpted Nickel Carbon Damascus blade, the frame is finely file worked along the spine, the thumb stud is inset with polished Onyx, the bolsters are hand sculpted Mosaic Damascus, the scales are hand sculpted Ironwood, Mammoth and Silver. This is a great piece with a combination of superior materials that blend into a overall look that really stands out. As a part time maker there are very few of Richards pieces available, he only comes to the US once a year. If Richard's work "speaks to you" as it does to me I encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity and acquire his work when the opportunity arises! I believe once Richard is "discovered" his work will be almost imposible to find as even now his work is highly sought after and he cannot keep up with demand. This knife is new from the maker, I have been holding onto it since I acquired it last year so I could enjoy it but alas, it is time to allow someone else to enjoy it. His work is finding its way into many a collection and his prices have continued to climb. He is hoping to become a full time maker, now is a great time to acquire his work.
