    I don't know how much it would cost, but how about nickel for the bolster? It looks great on the ux-10'bolsters, distinct, but not blingy.

    Sounds good Lefty and Pierre. I hope we are keeping those awesome taper angles from the mock-up.

    Gonna try! just have to figure a smooth transition to the G10 bolster, and a way to terminate it.

    I don't like that cleaver handle at all. 2 pins? No thanks. I don't like the shape or the roundness either. The three pin set up on the bottom one is eye catching though especially with the larger center pin. That's the way to go pin wise, seriously. I really do like the mock up as a starting point however. Needs some refinement like rounding on the butt end and tapered tang but I don't really consider that as the handle per se. The bolster is a good start but could also use a slight tweak. I can tell how the tapered angles will be a comfort benefit there as well. I would really love to see it like the mock up only more refined and also with nickel silver instead of copper or brass. Pins too. Nickel silver smaller pins, larger mosaic center. Win.

    I will buy this knife regardless, but my preference would be Pierres mock up, no bolster .

    cheers to this. Really look forward to seeing a mock up of this combination

    Gents. and ladys! I put a bolster thread in my forum to maybe not clutter this on up unnecessarily. Pop by and weigh in.

    In my measly n00b opinion I really like the look of the mock up with a darker wood. Really gives it a old school western feel (thinking bowie knife). Not too worried about tarnishing on the metal bolster as the carbon blade would show signs of mistreatment far before the brass bolster would. The cleaver handles do look pretty good and gives it a east meets west vibe. But the mock up just feels right, a classic look for a American made knife.

    I like the mockup handle, but I prefer a full height bolster, no angled corners. I like the facets, just not the angles at the corners to give the bolster that "rounded" front (as round as an angular bolster can be that is).
