Dang Bawanna, that K9 is somethin else! Way above my skill level. Now y'all got me thinkin about stabilized wood...can't believe I forgot about that stuff! Oh well, next knife
David, that's a really great idea. I'm not sure I'm brave enough to try it though.. I more wanted the checkering for the grip anyways, and actually like that it's practically invisible. I'd definitely be going for it if there was less grain "character" to the wood!
