Micarta type material for handle and saya, in two different patterns.

Very much experimental for both me and the maker, but I'm quite pleased with it. I don't think I'll end up with a large collection of these :)

That might not be my last one either though.

I think that qualifies as a hallucinagenic.
....or maybe call it Captain Nemo's Camo

Seriously. I feel like I should drop LSD and put on "Purple Haze" while staring at that!

Take it on Dead tour and cut grilled cheese with it...oh yeah, that was many moons ago...still looks pretty freaking cool in a strange way.

Does remind me of some college excess. Was never able to capture them on film though...

I can't believe that says Masamoto on it. Someone should take it to them so they can see it. They would really get a kick out of it.

NO ChoP!

There is something curiously appealing about it -- especially the saya. I do think an all black micarta handle with blue pins would of looked cool and tamed a bit of the eye-gasm, but you guys went all in, and appreciate that.

With that said, it is just time now before someone does a saya in the colors of Auburn, U of Michigan, or some other college football team ;)

This is the sort of thing I have in mind if I want to do this again.

More folks seem to like it than I expected....Cool.

I like the saya quite a bit. the concentricity of the circles almost seems like it's glowing or moving. How about Ohio State?

Crazy! Top marks for creativity.

I'd do my handle/saya combo in FC Barcelona's blaugrana.

Woah--that is mighty trippy. It definitely deserves a to be stored in some prominent place so that everyone who comes into your kitchen can be blasted by the full effect! :cool2:

As someone who lived through the Age of Aquarius, I approve.
Would like to see a matching cleaver. :happymug:

Its nice work, but I personally dont dig it when people add blue to a handle or saya. For me it screams unnatural, whereas handmade knives have a very natural, rustic, comforting feeling to them. IMO the only blue on a knife should be on the blade.
