Love it! Glad the blue came out. Was worried there would be too much yellow once you finished it. It’s exactly what I imagined when we designed it. Super excited. I’ve been out of town so haven’t check messages. Thanks for the hard work

You never know what's inside the block but we got lucky with this one. It makes me happy to hear that your idea was realized. :)

Turned out pretty. My father would love one like this because his favorite colors are blue and yellow.

I just finished up this one, it's an O1 160mm wa petty with dyed (teal) maple burl handle w/copper spacer. The handle was customer designed - he did well. :thumbsup:

Here's a 160mm petty made out of CPM154 with an ironwood and buffalo horn handle....

The handle is made slightly larger than normal because the customer has big hands and like big handles. Can't do much for this with a petty but I did my best.

I've got another 160mm petty finished up. This one is also made from CPM154 powdered stainless steel with a poly acrylic "copper" wa octagonal handle.

This knife was made to match it's big brother that the customer purchased HERE.

I wish that I could get more orders for this handle material, it makes such a nice handle in both looks and function. I did buy some more colors just in case I get a bite. :wink:
