    Not finished yet but made from O1 with brass bolsters and some funky acrylic handles. Also has file work on the tang which will be in pics to follow.

    Thanks guys! Metal, yellow spacers and some multicoloured blu acrylics between the bolsters. There is a second knife the same that will have the exact opposite in colour...

    I'd have never thought it, but I really like that handle. Can't wait to see the rest of the pix.

    Lol!!! Now that you mention it Rob I do recall that I have a bunch of alligator skin that I just might inlay into the sheath ;). I also finally got my custom makers leather stamp in the mail can't wait to try that out as well!!!

    lol Rob...I was tossing around the idea of embossed alligator skin but didn't have the time to mess around with it. I'm gonna try one of these days since I got 20 square feet of it. I do think the funky acrylics look way nicer on a fillet knife though ;)
