    This seems like a problem with a good solution. Maybe remove entire cavities of wood, and fill them in with something lightweight and permanent? It doesn't have to be pretty, it's the interior. Maybe Great Stuff? With the low level of abuse kitchen knives see, this seems solvable.

    I have a problem with the idea that the epoxy would weigh the same as the steel. Given that steel has over 7 times the specific gravity of steel, any steel that is replaced with epoxy is going to reduce the weight. As most wood has similar weight as epoxy, maybe that is what they are talking about.

    Dave, looks excellent. Like others have said I prefer the look of the pin-less bolster. Logo looks good, I'd skip the steel info on there to save time/work. All in all it looks like one hell of a knife and if it performs as good as it looks we have another great knife option.

    What is your expected timeframe to finish each knife from this point on?

    You could fill the wood cavities with your nasty styrofoam thingies instead of sending them to people

    I'm reluctant to say....or even guess.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    I thought that was a link.
    Kept clicking on it but nothing happened.

    Beautiful knife Dave.
    If I could give an opinion from a cosmetic point of view?
    The Martell & # marking look good, like a handmade limited edition.
    But.......the cryo treated and O1 steel markings start to give it the look of a factory production knife.

    I am probably way off base, but that was my first impression.

    I like the plain silver pin in the bolster and only 1 mosaic pin in the handle.

    I sent him my last knife packed in luxurious, high end lime green packing peanuts, and the bastard had the unmitigated audacity to return the knife with his crappy ones mixed into mine.

    I was appalled.
