Griffin you are doing some amazing work. I have lurked around many knife forums and am trying to finish my first. I have seen several other makers that dye their epoxy and make sure that it squishes up into the file work. It really makes the file work pop. I think that would add a little extra finish to your projects which are already superb. Keep up the good work. It is fine craftsmen like you that continue to inspire people like me to try new things.

Thank you, I have been wanting to do a knife with blue dyed epoxy and try letting it squish out I may try it on a knife for a friend of mine soon.

I made this one for a friends son. They have a box of 30 lbs of antlers on the way to me and I will make a few more like this one to sell as soon as I get caught up on 11 I have to make for orders.

Well I hope to have this on in the clamps by tomorrow night. But this is where I have this one so far I blanked it out last night then I spent about 2 1/2 hrs on it between working a split shift at work. Ive been working with some dye to use in the epoxy and it's a red/copper metallic color I hope it works out on this knife. If not I'm gonna spend a week removing epoxy from the file work.
