Blade is 3-3/4in long made of Al May firecracker pattern damascus. The button, front and rear bolsters are Chad Nichols ant farm pattern damascus. I hid all the bolster screws for a cleaner look. The liners, backbar and screw heads have been fully fileworked and the screw heads heat colored gold. The liners have been anodized a bronze/purple color. Overall length is 8-9/16in. This knife has great kick and "money click" when closed.
Let me know what you think.

First of all i love your style.

What I like most about this knife is the color, pattern, texture combination of all the elements. The knife looks like it is alive.

Chuck... you are rediculous!!! I have been impressed by your work in the past - I love the folding tanto that you did a while back - but this baby it right up there. There is one thing I'd like to see a bit more of from you though... tutorials... so I can be just a bit more like you when I grow up.:3:

Would you have drawings or sketch to help a first timer? I've made a few folders but no autos.
