Here's #2 all ready to ship. For this one we have some of the coolest ancient NZ kauri I've seen yet combined with a black canvas micarta bolster which has been pinned using black micarta rod (a little more subdued than the silver pin used on #1).

What do you think?

That's a significant improvement, imo. Nice job, Dave!

Its a start. Hope you start to fix your bolsters :)

I hate micarta. Makes me think of hunting and survival knives. I know Pierre had some micarta once going on, but Im glad I havent seen it on his knives for a year :)

I love it. Once I get my Rodrigue hunting knife paid for, expect an order! :)

I'm a huge fan of what you are doing with the handles and I think the micarta is a nice touch. Unique.

Looks wonderful Dave. And #10 is getting closer. Each number closer to 10 looks better.

Dave it does look better with a dark pin. I would still work towards hidden pins though.

Dave, what are the final dimensions on these, length, height, weight, etc?

I still think the bolster doesn't need a pin and that modern epoxy is strong enough... but I'm also not a knife maker =)

Yep. Dark pin was definately the way to go. Very nice blade and handle. Got some nice NZ Kauri myself, but I need to get them stabilized. Looks from your handle that it will be well worth the expense.

Nice looking knife, Dave. Can't wait to see #3.
I can't wait to see #3 either :D Feel free to take your time making it even more perfect if you need to:wink:! These last two look pretty impressive, I can't wait to see what the Ironwood looks like!
