A gift for my mom :rolleyes:

Blade is 80CrV2, 416 stainless bolster, ram's horn and lacewood.

The mustard patina did not darken as much as usual, no idea why.

Critique is welcomed!

That particular piece of lacewood turned out less than impressive. It was a bit of a let down because it's usually much more figured. Perhaps I am the culprit and I should've cut the piece differently. I honestly don't know...

It's usually quartersawn to show the flecks or specks or whatever you want to call it. 

That must be it. The piece was a 2"X2" block I got for free in a bulk buy and did not show nearly as much grain as other lacewood I had. It must have been cut straight instead of quarter sawn...

I did a blade with Lacewood a bit ago, Initially I was quite disappointed in it, then I resanded it up to 1200g and then did a CA glue treatment to it, and now its gorgeous and I dont want to give it up. 

Great looking blade man.

CA treatment as in stabilized? 

I sanded this one to #1000 then hit the buffer with white compound. I believe Cody hit the nail with the grain not being quartersawn..

Not exactly. basically you toss on a rubber glove, and rub superglue on the handle till you build up a bit of it, then sand it with high grit paper ( 1200+ ) and then buff.... 

both of these blades have that process done to them.
