Had to think for a while on which one I liked more. I'm going to go with the first, purely because the "random" pattern in the blade looks like leaves to me, and combined with the burl makes for an extremely harmonious whole. Regardless, stellar work on both! Whenever I see you've posted something new I always bring out my bib...

 

I swear when I get back to the states I'm printing out pictures of every knife you've shown us and pinning them up as as a reminder of what's possible. Might just give me a kick in the rear! B)

Thanks for all the kind words!

The crystal is firmly set, can't have it come loose or drop out of its place ;-)

Sorry, I meant is like caged, where it can still move around inside the setting but not come out, or just firmly braced?

Its not caged, the crystal has a really tight fit into the hole, and it is secured by an adhesive.

I dont go as far as to start making "jewelry-esque" cages etc, usually I can clamp the inlays under the encircling ring (as with the Oceanis, the wooden ring sits on top of the inlay), which makes it virtually impossible to get the inlay out without breaking everything apart.

 

Hope this clears out your questions! :-)

The last time you posted, Caleb stated that your posts are the reason he both hates and loves this forum... Make sense to me!!! Thanks...
