    i think the pin in the bolster is just fine. if the bolster is going to have a pin, i would prefer that it be silver. having it stand out makes it stand out less, if that makes sense.

    Dave, that looks great!

    I personally like the pin in the bolster, but think it could be smaller. Maybe just an 3/16.

    Overall, very impressive.

    Try one without any pin at all - just AcraGlas.

    I hope I didnt offend you Dave.

    I have no clue why you underline the logo, its so.....eh....1990.
    Underlining is almost not used anymore. If you want to draw attention we in 2010 use bold to show the importance. But if you feel like underlining is the way to go you should do that. But as I think the font already draws attention, I have no idea why you underline things. Things can get to much, yet simple style is still the best. See Bill Burke and Devin

    I would prefer that the bolster is all black without the silver pin. Just MHO.

    Otherwise, it looks great!

    How did you end up grinding the knives?

    Not bad I like te pin but also would likle to see a slightly smaller version and then decide. Mosaic pin would be too much. In a less busy handle, I can also see red liners and a red pin.

    I don't like the pin in the bolster and the micarta doesn't compliment the wood very well. Why not try a pinned stainless bolster?
    "Experience" is what you get when you don't get what you want.

    I think stainless or something similar would look better as well.

    Dave, any chance that by, say, knife #19 you'll be able to offer mokume bolsters as an option?

    I also tend to prefer no pin. I don't know, the pin just makes the bolster look smaller ... or is it just me. Anyway, I viewed the below and your pic side by side and think I prefer the below.
