While that is not my style, that is beautiful work. I can't begin to imagine the work and craftsmanship that has gone into that so far. It's always a pleasure to see the work that you all do.

Gorgeous piece of craftsmanship! About how many hours do you think you have invested it, to this point?

Hey Thanx Yall! And honestly on the hours not quite sure and not sure I wanna know!! LOL! When I set out to build a folder it's done in many diff stages while I'm building other types of knives. It's actually a neat process to watch unfold and to watch the knife evolve - that is if you've got a lot of time on your hands!! Some of my folders go slow and then again others go slower!! LOL! But they are all unique one of a kind Pocket Knives!

Well I just thought I was done!!! Now I think I am again!?!? After looking at her for a couple of days I went through her with a fine tooth comb! And decided to anodize and age the Bolsters. I like her lots more!
