    Damn, that might be the best looking bolster I have ever seen.

    Very nice pics. That garlic crusher isn't something that I usually add to my knives, but that turned out great. And that nice "Ribbon Koa" is from Burl Source - a really nice, unique piece that Mark Farley picked out for this project.

    First of all Justin, that is an amazing knife and good job with the photos. Congrats to both you and Rader on this one. And I am actually one of the lucky ones to physically handle the knife. The integral damascus bolster was one of the things I noticed first too. It just makes the handle flow into the blade.

    Maybe I will swing my scale by this week so you can weigh it.

    I have always thought if Michael was to give up knife making, he could make a name for himself in the world of fine woodworking.

    Beautiful knife!

    Ha. My grandfather made really intricate jewelry boxes with marquetry style inlays and my dad was always making cabinets and stuff in the shop, so it's in my blood. I've been thinking about turning some more bowls and maybe even furniture, but the fine woodworking business is more cut-throat than knifemaking. I guess I'll stay with custom knives and I have enough orders to pay the bills for the next 8-9 months, so I'll keep my day job for now.

    And, Mark, that is a nice piece of Koa you picked out for this project - thanks.
