Your Yellowhorse and Santa Fe Stoneworks knives are just gorgeous, Paul! Truly works of art, each one. I always love seeing pictures of them here.

I usually don't do purdy knives, but I've modded a couple that got a bit more purdy. I think most of you have seen them already though.

Nice, David! That Kiwi 4 looks phenomenal with those polished and contoured scales. I would love to see something like that make it back into the production lineup.

I don't have a lot of traditionally beautiful knives, but I think these are pretty.

It's money in the bank for Spyderco, at least depending on how it changes the original cost. I think it would have sold much better this way.

Beautiful ironwood scales! Where did you get the micarta scales for the GB2? They look excellent.

All my custom scales, except the Ikuchi's are from Andrej "Suingab". Excellent service, and fit & finish equals OEM. (The Ikuchi scales were made by an instrument maker friend of mine)
