    A customer asked me to build a knife for a fathers day gift. I couldn't really put my finger on what we were shooting for. So I built three to choose from.

    Raindrop Damas, redwood burl, satin stainless bolsters and pins.

    Random Damas, amboyna burl, polished stainless bolsters and pins.

    5160 polished, desert ironwood. polished stainless bolsters and pins.

    ...and I finally got my mark looking the way I want it.

    I think I'm going to etch them a bit more, but I wanted to get photos while the sun was still up.

    Absolutely beautiful! My fav is the random damas w/amboyna. That someone's Dad is going to be awestruck.

    Your maker's mark is looking good too. Etch only on the polished blade? Or did you etch and mark then polish the mark out?

    Very nice work!

    Thanks very much Dan. I had planned on just a mark at first, but it was too bold for me. So I etched it and polished it.
