Here is a knife I recently completed for a customer. The finished knife has a 3-3/4in blade of 1095, differentially heat treated with a hamon. The bolster is water-jet titanium from Great Lakes waterjet and the scales are green canvas micarta. The liner, the lock side and the clip are all titanium. The lock side and clip have been textured. The back spacer is also green canvas micarta and follows the length of the handle up to the stop pin. Overall length is 8-1/4 I think.
Thanks for looking,
Chuck

I gotta say that is one of the coolest folding knives I've laid eyes on. I'm not blowing smoke up your ass by saying that Chuck. You had another one similar to it a couple years ago you posted on bf that really piqued my interest.

The full length backspacer is a feature sorely lacking in today's folding knives. I really have no use for the trend toward having an open back on a knife, even though many of my knives are built that way.
