    Knife #4 is done. This one has Norfolk Pine scales with a couple of copper pins for something different.

    Nice! I like the copper pins and the electro etching is looking great.

    Thanks, I'm starting to figure that device out, it's not hard just little things make a difference in the quality of the mark.

    I'm not fond of the copper pins on that one...but the etching is your best yet!

    Can't wait till these get put through the paces.

    +1 on the etch!

    I think that when those pins start to patina, they will really highlight some of the contrasting colours in the wood. All these knives have a very "classy" look.

    That's what I was thinking - the copper pins will patina and will (hopefully) look better.

    That's all your training paying off.

    The customer wanted a mosaic but I didn't have any copper ones.

    I think it's unique, and adds character. A numbered series where no two are the same, It would definitely have value and appeal to some collectors. Especially if his work takes off
