    I'm seeing the reverse. Looks like they are getting less crisp.

    The Martell mark to me looks deeper and bolder but fuzzier. The #3 mark looks the best so far though.

    I think that you're correct it would blend in better but I'm not touching ebony - it's a cursed wood for knifemakers.

    Would you get a better match with black paper micarta instead of the linen micarta?
    "Experience" is what you get when you don't get what you want.

    It's canvas that I'm using now and yeah Pierre actually suggested switching to paper or linen to hide the pin better. I'm somewhat partial to the carbon fiber (esque) look of the canvas though.

    I agree on the ebony bolster. The amount needed is inexpensive and has all of the qualities desirable in this application.
    I have not had any problems with it in handles.
