    Wow. That is some serious figure on the brown burl.

    A couple of notes...

    The handles on these knives are slightly thicker than I've made in the past on my hidden tang knives. I hear the comments/requests and I've been working towards making more full bodied handles. What I've been able to come up with is subtle in looks but big in comfort. The middle of the handle is done with a swell which allows for the filling of the hand without pushing the hand forward into the blade like a taper (alone) does, plus the hook (beak?) relief allows for proper wrap around still. I feel this new design is very comfortable and should fair well in even the toughest pro environment where many hours of use are going to occur.

    On the O1 knife, the blue handled one, note that the buffalo horn is not all black. There's a lighter shaded (gray-ish) section up on top aligned with the spine that adds some nice content to the handle. It shows (sorta) in some of the pictures. The blue color is real nice, has that outer space kind of feel to it.

    On the CPM154 knife, the brown handled one, the dye contrast shown between like and dark patterns is really something else. I see what looks like maple type stripes (bands?) in the solid brown sections up near the ferrule, just interesting is all. I've handled a lot of box elder burl and this is one of the more dramatic pieces I've seen.

    That blue dyed wood is so vivid, I feel as if I'm looking into a constellation or something. Also a fan of the natural color tones of the brown one

    This is some amazing looking stuff. I may have to grab myself a Martell knife next year when I have a justifiable knife budget again XD

    Dave, do you aim for roughly symmetrical or a right bias on your knives? I ask as a lefty-user :3

    Hi foody,
    I do as close to symmetrical as possible free handing. I've had a few lefty customers who had good things to say.

    Thanks for asking and for the kind words too.

    I could not put my finger on it, but once you mentioned the 'constellation' I realised that the blue handle reminds of the "Starry Night" painting by Monet
