I don't usually go in for colorful handles, but that one goes perfectly with the color/pattern of the blade. Really nice work Will.

Normally I'll try and compress the pattern so it can be forged to shape as thats how I like to work. Next time i'll plan it a bit more like that and see what comes out. Its allways a fun time etching something when your not quite sure what you've done.
This one is now on its way to a new owner in NY, a KKF member, so thanks KKF.
