Hi C,

it's a man made composit made with resin and mica powder smells amd works alot like nitrocellous

just dont "ignite" as fast

it is a tad brittle and will crack or shatter if you drop in on a hard surface or work it to aggressivly

it drills, and works decently enuff I'd use it again without hesitation

I got it from jantz supply(www.knifemaking.com)

let folks say what they want about it, I think it looks pretty darn good. Though pink is not my favorite color, i really do like the marbled/pearl-like appearance. good work.

Have you ever thought about the life of steel? It's interesting to think that you can control the fate of a piece of metal.

That's a nice dagger,...my wife was standing behind me as i opened your post and she said ohhhh thats pretty...lol so i guess it is a girly dagger... but i still like it

You're the same dumb pilgrim who I've been hearing for twenty days, and smellin' for three!

Great knife. my opinion - a well made dagger can not be "girly." They can be very sensual or sexy - but that's all woman.

 

well done,
