    This is a custom that was made for a lady who had her kitchen remodeled. The accent tile on her splash back is very similar in colour to the amethyst Acrylester in the knife's handle.

    It's made from 1/8" CPM154 stock with a fairly short 7" blade, that is a full 2" deep at the heel.
    The scales as mentioned before are amethyst Acrylester with green fibre spacer.
    Pins are brass and the centre mosiac, all 3/16".

    I brushed this blade with a very fine Norton Vortex conditioning belt.
    The Acrylester was wet sanded up to 1500 grit and then buffed with black compound, then white compound.

    Christmas knife #2 of this season. Several more to come.

    Thanks for looking!

    Thanks man. I got the scales from a place called Wood & Acrylic Supply.
    Around US$10 + postage for the set.
    I love the way they polish up. Stellar finish with some wet sanding.
    I have a few more scale sets and blocks on the way. Can't wait.

    Good stuff, I just got a plate of 1098 so I'm looking for what I can do with grinding and scales.
