    As a rule, I usually have no love for ‘harpoon’ tips, but it works well, here. Great handle material!!! Holy cow is that green!:thumbsup:

    Looks nice! Good color. The handle material is similar to some celluloid handles on an old double-bladed auto I have.

    Thanks, guys.

    Yeah, I can't figure out the purpose of the so-called harpoon profile, but they sure do look purty to me. I've been practicing them for a purpose, which maybe one day will be finished and posted here. It's been 6 years, so don't hold your breath.

    The handle is REALLY that green! It's nuts. Material was gifted to me by a botanist, so you know - she likes green. :)

    Very classy little harpoon profile! sometimes they can get a bit overboard and dominate the look of the knife, but this is really nicely balanced
