    Looks great! I have handle with amboyna between 2 white bone scales and a black horn ferrule - I like the color combo. Of course, it will be killer with the musk ox scales instead of the plain horn. Personally, I am leaning more towards less busy handles, especially if they might distract from the beautiful blade. But that comes down to personal taste. In the end, I find that much easier to decide if I have the materials in front of me.

    Ok update time. I have the bevel rough ground, 50 grit to about .010 thick edge. After doing dinner with the wife and kid, i plan on getting the blade finished up and etched.
    I am trying to do a blended 3 flat/convex. Here is the primary flat grind.


    Here it is ground all the way up to the spine with the secondary bevel.


    And here it is with the 3rd bevel ground in taking the edge to about .010. I will grind the edge to .001 before i lay in the edge bevels.


    Hope to have pictures of it finished up later tonight! Getting super excited about this one!

    is that the suji? If so did you change the profile? It looks tall.

    It definitely looks and sounds like a winner.

    Yes Salty, this is the damascus one. The profile has not changed since i cut it out! I have it cut to the exact profile of your knife. It is just my lack of photography skills. I am really stoked with how this is turning out. I cant wait to get the handle materials, i am going to seriously take my time with the handle....too much money to screw up lol.
