    I've been thinking explosion damascus bolsters with a darker burly wood.

    I say go Kramer-esque, to prove you can make one just as nice (or nicer?) Go with mokume/or dammy bolster, and ironwood scales. How do you feel about brass bolsters and pins?

    One of these days I'm going to have to try to learn how patterns like this are created in steel. Random I can understand, but not this.

    Impressive.

    Bill what are your thoughts on the "roller wave"? That was a very distinguished NO so I'm curious on your opinion on them.

    Don, I Have never actually Had One of Bob's knives in My hand so don't really have Much to say about it. It is possible that the hollow is there to help reduce weight in the blade and thin things out behind the edge. I can see a possible need for this with Bob's wide blade style.

    These are just some random thoughts though.
