    Are these basically thin sheets of colored material laid under a clear acrylic cover which is then countoured and polished? That Coffee House color along with the Corduroy are my favorites.

    I only own this one and I think the actual acrylic is red. No matter how I hold it I see red, no hint of clear but the pattern is on the bottom reflecting up. I think this is what they call the looking glass acrylics. The ones like kryptonite look like ribbons of color twisted and melted together. I think a few different techniques are used to produce theyre acrylics.

    I like that new Halfwhitt Jeff, great knife. I'll have to get some decent outdoor pics to contribute. Til then, these are what I have already.

    Their acrylic holds up nice, this 85 has a decent amount of pocket time.

    I think the only ones that are clear are the 'looking glass' versions of pearl or abalone. The Coffee House looks very nice, guys.:thumbup:

    There are some nice examples here also.

    Thanks for the quote, Ed. I had noticed some knives labeled as looking glass+ on dealer websites, but didn't know what the distinction was between those and the regular kind.
