Agree Son. We have a lot of Chinese antiques and Jade is important. Good eye.

Just to clear up some Jade info .

Here in California and the west coast of north America .
we have Jade harbor in Big Sur ,CA where you can go scuba dive for jade for free just follow the rules .
and people do the same thing in British Columbia and that is where they mine NEPHRITE JADE and export to china .
but they do sell sample pieces for about $50.00 and rings in different sizes for $10.00

all and all just some more info and a video of the mining which is pretty good .

could jade make a good set of scales for a chef knife?

I don't know but people have been using it for knifes for a long time .
but you your thinking of doing it and want the look go with G-10 Jade green scales easier to work with
then again a $50.00 sample from the mine might be cool.
