    I shot a few more pictures of this knife after it was sharpened. I think these pictures show the surface texture of the blade a little better. I also thew in a couple of handle pics too, I couldn't resist.

    I would loved to have seen this knife in person. Some pictures make the red look brighter than others, but I'm wondering if it's actually darker like it shows in a couple of those pictures. BTW, what is mycarta?

    Hi Dan, the tone of the red is IMO somewhere between all the extremes shown in the pictures. I'd say it's more of a darker red than bright red.

    "Mycarta" is what Butch calls his own version of micarta that he makes.

    I've never seen micarta in person so I don't have a clue as to what it is. Some looks like a laminate of some kind and Butch's stuff looks like it's a mix of a colored resin, kind of like Jell-O, with colored fibers mixed in.

    Here's a thread butch had on making some of his mycarta: http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/sh...3-mycarta-burl

    I wanted to mention something about the cladding patterns on these knives and how it's uneven looking. That isn't something created by me through thinning, it's showing the pattern just how it came from the factory. Why it looks so dramatic is that I remove material which raises the pattern higher on the blade.

    So on the above knife you see the left side as being ground more at the tip and heel, and more on the left than the right side, but an equal amount was removed along both sides to simply raise the cladding.

    What I see is that I'm simply raising the pattern higher on the blade to reflect how it was ground already.
