That is a great looking knife. I really like the blade shape, and that cactus is very cool.

I have to show my ignorance but what did you do to the cactus to stabilize it?

Hey Thanx Guys!! I didn't do the cactus I bought it! From what I understand it has to be defleshed and then cleaned and dried then cast in colored polymers in a vacuum chamber.
