Woops guess I should have read more of those posts first. Put me down for Abalone. Rumor has it that it is getting hard to find Abalone especially in a decent enough size for use in a knife. So I figure I better buy some knive with Abalone.
It doesn't matter that I almost never wear a tie, I'd buy one anyway. My thoughts are either a plain metal(Ti of FeCn) or maybe a mini version of the Viele. I agree with whoever said it, wood is a bad idea that small, it'll crack.
ps maybe a damascus handled version
We've had a lot of action on this thread. I take it we're waiting until after the 1st of the month to put up a survey to determine just how much demand exists for a Bladeforum.com tie clipit in either stainless or abalone. If the software will support 2 surveys at the same time, I'd recommend going with it now.
Could anyone give me a link where I could find a picutre of a knife with Abalone scales. Because before I read about this I thought Abalone was a kind of fish that comes in a can that we keep downstairs. Thanks
