That handle looks very cool, and the blade, well, looks like a Burke (i.e., phenomenal)

I like it. Very yin/yang handle, and the blade compliments it well. Can you describe a blade as smokey?

It's gorgeous -- tell us about the steel and the handle materials.

Wow, crazy looking Bill. Is the back side of the knife the same pattern?

That's not my cup if tea... But I certainly can appreciate the skill & craftsmanship that's gone into it!!! Awesome work, and I like how the materials go together.

I love the blade, and while the handle wouldn't be my first choice, like Huw, I can certainly appreciate the skill and craftsmanship involved.

Impressive.
