    Finished Damascus blade 8" with red amboyna handles, blue spacers, Mexican Agate strue stone and some filework on the spine...

    That turned out real nice. One of these days if I ever finish all of my ongoing projects I have to try some file work.

    Thanks Icho, the handle material I had planned totally failed due to be brittle :( but I found some recycled shop material to make it work. I think you would like doing file work but if your anything like me there is so much I want to try and so much more I don't want to screw up...lol!!!
