Wow that is clean! I especially like the crispness of the lines in the leather, and also the lines in the handle, and pretty much everything else too :) Great work! The gentle curve of the entire spine of the blade and handle really does it for me

this micarta color combination is a experiment that turned out better as i was thinking and im sure i gonna make some more of it for my future projects.

I think the sheath with the detailed / molded finish is excellent, make a person want to look further at the product inside.

Yes, do more micarta this way. I like the blued blade finish contrasting looks between the spine and edge and plunge cuts of course.

Nice design.

Geko,

 

That is an overall very nicely made and designed knife. The first thing I saw in the photos was the handle which I like very much , then I found out it was homemade micarta, wow.
