    Here we have Mr. Drinky's daughter's Misono child's knife in old growth redwood burl (from Stefan Keller). Pins are nickel silver.

    This is a nice little knife that was a pleasure to work on.

    Awesome looking knife! That is job security right there. Train them for the best when they are young.

    Those both look great Dave. Thanks a million. And I'm sure my daughter will love her new scales -- just what she wanted for Christmas Btw, I think I am going to nickname the Kikuichi 'Rusty'.

    Very nice work, Dave. What thickness of G-10 are you using for liners?

    Um... I'm hugely jealous. This knife is awesome. Flat out awesome. Great work Dave.

    These handles are tricky to do because you more or less have to reshape the front and rear bolsters to blend in with the handle shape. The results are nice but this does require more work than normal. Also, this particular Nenox knife has factory steel liner sheets that are integral with the bolsters but not the tang which means they pop us loose (in the middle - not the ends) after the factory scales are removed. They're troublesome when drilling and even more troublesome when trying to get a tight fit up. Again more work needed than most knives but the results seem to be worth it.

    Hope you enjoy this one Rio.
