    I ordered some alternative Ivory yesterday, not necessarily for this project but it's an option.

    I've got some Nickel Silver in 5/16"

    Willing to try to find whatever we come up with, except Unicorn horn, I think they're endangered.

    Alternative Ivory? Does that grow on these?

    Nickel silver is my choice. It somehow looks classier to my eyes. Don't ask me why, I don't know.

    Looks like were going with a 7" blade.
    I changed the Poll to guard material, Bronze or Nickel Silver.

    Or if stacked leather, blues N/S hardware? Just a sleep deprived thought...

    The poll was hinky. It had my vote as Bronze, which I changed to NS. Mack wanted NS too, but it's not showing as a vote,yet.

    It showed I already voted, for bronze, which I wanted to anyway, I had just not done it yet. May be a glitch with changing over a poll?

    I kinda like this way of using polls to design a knife. We'll let this go until tomorrow or so and move on to handle material, is everyone agreed on an S guard?

    Right? Couple of options, and movin' right along. Would it help if I changed the title to reflect the poll?

    I really don't think you need to, it's kinda implied with the brainstorm of the title, and eberybody will get around to reading, at least everyone interested!

    That was the ghost of old Jim Bowie saying that it MUST be bronze.

    (He actually would have said brass and rosewood but that wasn't a choice)

    Handle material is next.
