    Nice! I actually had to look twice at the handle - that looks like one of mine, same design and proportions as the one I just sent to Jeff, but I couldn't remember having used that combination before

    The knife looks awesome, I like the profile a lot sand the grind looks superb.
    Handle very nicely compliments the blade.
    Great job.

    Wow, knife and handle look amazing, interesting profile as well looks like the tip will be really agile especially given the thinness.
    How long did it take and where did the steel cone from?

    That one look very nice !!! I like the patterns on the steel a lot ! What is the steel ? where to get

    Yeah really....awesome job. Like to know the steel maker too. I guess that assumes you made this from scratch which you didn't mention unless I missed it.
