    Super duper stabilized curly Koa from Mark at BurlSource

    Thanks for looking

    Nice one, bro!
    There is no going back. If you find that you're comfortable where you were, it's because you never really left.

    If you happen to be bored, I took some photos and videos along the way.

    I enjoyed the tag along, and it looks great now that it's done. It tried to impliment some of the things you talked about in you vids on the handle on the last one I did. Thank you for teaching us all so many things. I have learned so much from you and your WIPS and vids. I hope to meet you face to face some time.

    Beautiful work my friend! Thanks for the props but really not necessary. The scale of lessons taught is leaning heavily on your side.

    Lovely work as always, Nick, and some good video to go with it.

    That's some gloss on that handle,

    Amazing work as usual. It is the clean factor that is so impressive.

    very nice!

    It is simply shocking to me that Nick continues to foist his designs, workmanship and materials off on the unsuspecting custom knife community.

    It simply has to stop and stop now. If any of Nick's victims seek restitution for their Wheeler acquisitions, please PM me.

    Clean and mean! Nice, Nick. Congrats, Bill. That Koa with ladder pattern is hard to beat. Awesome piece.
