Another beautiful creation Rob. Cocobola is my most favorite of all naturals.
Very impressed with your color schemes, works well on that knife. Thumbs up !!

That is a beautiful color scheme and very nice attention to detail.
Why is the grind line so low ? I don't doubt that it will cut but that does make for a very "maul" shaped edge.......

Very beautiful work as usual. The colors in the handle really pop. Same question as Ray, why such a low grind line? I could understand it on a thin steel, but that looks like it's fairly thick.

grind height is right where I wanted it to be on this piece....that's the nice thing about the art in knifemaking, do what ever you want , no real right or or wrong just preference ....after stropping it does slice through 1/4'' leather nicely, should make quik work of an elk hide this fall.......

Well I stink at leather sheaths and my kydex sheaths are basic, so its fun for me to see the quality sheaths other people make. Plus I think I'm building a reputation as the "Where is the Sheath?" guy so I have to keep it up.

Like the cocobolo grip. Not easy to find here but brother-in-law-2 is a guitar builder, trying to get some over there. Works great with the copper I think.
