Have you done this to any of yours?

What is the purpose of it?

No more horrific than a normal Harpy or Merlin. Sorry, just NOT a fan of them.

It's called bejeweling I think. Obviously some people think it looks cool. I want to see it in person first before passing judgement. ;-)

They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Kinda explains why
ugly women find husbands and that someone would like this knife.
My only comment is...... Why???????

I like jeweling on knives and guns if done right.

I've got to say I'm not a fan of it.

I prefer items I purchase to be simple and elegant (SS Delica), rather than flashy.

i think thouse knives are be shown as an example of technolocial skill not taste.

Looks like it would be difficult to clean the blood from it. Just kidding OF COURSE!

I'm going to get my handles on my SS Delica done some day. It will cost about $30.00 or so. Add a little class to my plain ol'steel handles. Also cover up some of the scratch marks in the handle.
The Harpy has too much jeweling, but imagine it with a regular blade and a jeweled handle. <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>
