Some Maple Burl

Very nice. If you want you can send me the knife and I will give it a review and keep it for my services? Think about it.

lol very good. I can tell you that these are all I use and they work beautifully. I bought a few pieces of lace maple burl that had been stabilized and the grain patterns are really something.

Beautiful knife. I think I see a hamon on the blade. Is that edge hardened?

Is it wrong to be aroused by a beautiful knife?

yep it's a hamon. It was clay quenched. I don't polish them out much but I do etch the blade. Gives it that old timey look

I do like that Lace Maple burl and wonder what you might think about using Birdseye Maple on one.
It would look good with the BM grips on my Sig P938.
