This is a scorpion that a client ordered that was to be a edc knife but I am sure will be a queen now.After several conversations it went from maple burl scales to walrus ivory, scrap the pocket clip and engrave the ss bolsters.Mr. Hurst will be adding his skills to this project soon and I will also show pics then.What ya'll think so far??

Outstanding Butch. I have some knives like this in my shop and they are breathtaking! Smooth as silk and just gorgeous file work w Mammoth and Heat colored Bolsters. The engraving should be the icing on the cake.

Sure is a nice piece, Butch!
Does that walrus tusk work pretty much like other ancient ivory?

Very nice, I'm a big fan of file worked knives, and now a big fan of your work

Very nice. File work is like chrome to me, in that too much or in the wrong place is makes something look cheap or gaudy. You did a very good job balancing it. Great work and a beautiful knife.

Here are closeups of the bolsters after Ken finished them. I will show the full knife photo after Coop works his majic as i'm sure I can't do it justice
