    So I'm really getting my feet under these special pinout knives. They take forever though. This set of scales took me over 4 hours to process. The knife is an 1/8" thick tapered tang Arete.



    This pin was a mistake, hence the knife is not for sale, but it is beautiful and I plan to feature this on upcoming knives.

    If you are going to do all that, then you probably need to also align the pins..... Kiddin..... Just me, I can totally appreciate the massive pain and effort required in putting that one together, but I find it distracting overall. I guess I could use a little more order to the cloud burst, it looks too random to me, maybe build it up with more of a base. I also thought about a sun burst - one center, four on the next ring, six next, nine, or whatever works-- spirograph with a drill press if you will. But hey, that's just me and I'm sure Tony can't wait to get it and with the right shades of blue....

    Would be cool if you made it look like a redfish and then had the spot be the bulls-eye. This thing is growing on me as I fiddle away a Friday afternoon at work.

    I wonder if someone might make pins with glow resin? Or maybe embed tritium capsules- nah that would be tacky....but I might buy it!!

    I agree! When I first saw his other one I said it reminded me of a trout. I'd love a redfish ladyfinger in stainless!
