    Finished this one up a couple of days ago for a coworker to raffle off for a heritage society he is a part of. It has Dan Seaver waterfall Damascus (1084/15N20), 416 mirror polished bolsters, .050" titanium liners, and an awesome set of desert Ironwood scales. This is the first time I have truly mirror polished anything. It was kind of frustrating it seemed like every time I touched it, it would scratch!!! Any comments or critiques are welcome.

    Thanks John! This is probably the best knife I've made to date. Everything just kind of went together smooth. Minus finishing the bolsters!

    I got into this hobby to eventually make folders. I dream of making a knife like that one.

    Well done, Jay ! That problem with polished bolsters is the same for everyone.Perhaps go to some sort of texturing.

    I'm glad it's not just me Frank! I'm going to order some thicker titanium and give that a try for the next couple. Thanks for the comments guys!
