    Good idea. I'm considering taking handle to professional engraver so that I wouldn't screw it myself

    Or, even ask another professional to engrave on the soft iron as well! It's a sign that this item only belongs to one particular person.

    I think I would engrave her name onto the blade, but not the handle. Maybe have her initials in an inlay inspired by Mikey's honu mana handles with the turtle inlay...

    The way I see it is that when you put together a knife for loved ones, if it's too "nice" the knife won't be used. And that's the point I feel a knife is a faliure, people tend to forget that a knife is a tool, a tool made for cutting things.

    A tool should never be a hurdle, even if it looks fantastic... that's just a bonus.

    Removed old handle (couldn't just knock it off due to TONS of epoxy inside, so had to destroy it) and put some older handle just for the sake of taking photo



    this time Richmond logo is better visible
