I thought about this piece, I think it would look great with a mirror finished knife, not silly at all, and truly unique.

I'm sure that will look nice when it's finished. If you want to see silly, search for butch's 'smashed hippie' mycarta ;)

Ok

Gotta ask, how do you pimp a knife ?
Take a look at Daves re-handle galley, Stefans website and the Fish gallery. Should pretty much answer that.

(I would link,but I'm using my phone)

I think it would look great. It reminds me of the finish on the Ibanez rga427z which I love and want badly.

personally, i don't really go for the weird colors. I'm not a fan of most of the green dyed stabilized woods i've seen, either. that purple's a bit bright for my liking. i dunno, call me old-fashioned, but i think wood should be wood-colored (purpleheart notwithstanding).

A black ferrule and end-cap and a metal spacer or two and your all set.

Well I see that piece is gone. I hope you got it and at the one-day sale price to boot.

I did a couple of purple western handles this year. I think that depending on what you get it can be pretty nice looking but that depends on your sense of style I guess.

I think you should do green spacers, a gold end cap and gold mosaic pins; you can call it the Snoop Dogg Knife...

Is this purple dyed lacewood?
Sycamore if memory serves me correctly. From Burl Source. He has it dyed in a couple colors. It looks great in person, some metallic sparkle and color change as you move it around.
