Because of the fact that it is seen primarily on kit knives and the $50 and under damascus bowies at the flea markets, I would avoid it.
I have had it on a cheaper Anza file blade knife and a $200 Hendrix custom.
Some of the color combos do seem a bit tacky.
But Pierre here, this looks great.
For a filet knife that may see extended water exposure (salt?), fish slime, and other hard use elements I think it is great choice.
Doesn't really do anything for me... I'm too used to having my jaw drop when I see Pierre's handles, that even as nicely as this wood turned out, I realised that ONLY the wood itself made it less than Pierre's usual masterpiece.
My honest opinion when i see it is "Frost Cutlery". You did a good job with it, but it does seem to devalue knives it is on, Whereas a multi color micarta or G10 might be a safer bet.
