This is a cpm 154 cm 7.5 inch drop point hunter for my uncle for free lol (he wants to pay me, but I’m not ready for that... way too insecure). Handle is African Blackwood and Koa with grey/green fiber spacer. I used, same on the last 3 or 4, acraglass gel... I’ll never use anything else. It has proven itself to me .... unbelievably strong and water/heat resistant. I took this knife very seriously as I wanted to get the splice right... the acraglass was the key to this victory. I also wanted to pay closer attention to curves and to the overall finish and feel of the handle. I went much slower really ... trying to get the curves right and even. There are still many, many mistakes, but I’m noticing, at this time in my development, that every knife seems to be exponentially better than the one before.... better in my eyes I should add lol. I can’t really explain my next comment, but I have a feeling that you guys will be able to relate. For some reason, again I can’t explain it, when I hold the knife in my hand, it “feels enpensive.” Maybe the weighting/balance? Fit n finish? Maybe it’s just because I’m biased? No clue. Maybe it’s just a good fit for my hand? It just feels like it cost $1000 lol. Critique the heck out of it... I need to improve. Thanks for looking. PS Nothing above was intended to sound arrogant or or overly impressed with myself lol. I’m a total noob as you all know. I guess I’m just trying to explain how the knife feels in my hand.
