    Very nice Mark, I do molded handles with Twill weave carbon but being high gloss they show every imperfection. Will try your stone washing system and give up on high gloss.

    Great looking knife.

    Everyone says how dirty it is working with carbon fiber. Production makers are starting to have their scales cut with water jets but I guess final fitting and finishing is still a dirty job.

    Great looking knife Mark! I assume the sweeping plunge line is achieved by initiating the going with the blank angled across the belt rather than say a 90 degree approach?

    Another beautiful job there Mark. You've got some nice swirly patterns in the scales and the orange g10 liners give it some pop.

    Nice knife, good thing you put the orange liner in because someone could lose sight of it as soon as it fell on the ground.
    Really nice 'using' shape. I'm not sure I'm sold on the whole 'stonewashed' thing.
