    Good looking lines again.
    To me the bloodwood is one to many, but that is my taste

    You have a great eye for design Jelle. I would tend to agree that the Bloodwood seems out of place. You have a beautifully shaped blade and handle with those wonderful bold linear grain lines running down the length of the handle. The grain accents the sleek lines of the knife then the Bloodwood kind of kills the flow of the dynamic linear motion of the handle. It's a small nit to pick and only my opinion. A very handsome knife though.

    I have to agree with you guys. More of the Macassar Ebony would have been nice but the block I had wasn't big enough. I do like the Bloodwood though, especially as it will get gets darker with time. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! Jelle
