That is definately a different style than I'm used to seeing. It definately catches the eye, the color contrast in the wood as well as the pink tint of the copper all make this a one of a kind blade.

Bolsters look good. It looks to be built like a tank. The lucky buyer should use the heck out of that thing.

Awesome. Love the copper. I am also a fan of the fine horizontal sanding. The copper and the dark wood go really well together.Very nice work Franklin.

I've been thinking about a Hamon too on one of my next blades--gotta study up on it. That's not my style but it is eyecatching, and I love the finish work you have--that is an awesome photo with the knife just levitating--nice work brother

Very nice Franklin, that is a great looking knife! The more I see copper used in the knives, the more it becomes my favorite material.
