    I hate everything about it. The funny looking blade, the stupid lump on the end of the handle and the f**ken mosaic pins and tubes. The only good things are, its not my design, it hasnt got my makers mark and its in the post tomorrow.
    AND before one of you lot ask me to make you one 'just like it'..... YOU CANT AFFORD IT, SO DONT ASK!!!! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Must admit, I've never been a fan of mosaic tubes. I like mosaic pins, in the right situation though.

    I think the whole mosaic pins and tubes are like putting alloy rims on a series 2 landrover

    Handle thickness dose not look consistent, if that be so I think getting that right would be more important than flashy pins, also fat rims on a series 2 lando look awesome it's not like its going off road.....I'll um get me coat

    The scale thickness is even, just the camera angle. White pouder coated rims on an old landy will always be better than alloys

    Forward Control rims are even better on Landy, far greater depth and just look right.

    The funny looking blade looks like it'd be good for slicing, and the lump on the end of the handle (which looks like it wouldn't slip) would make a good nut cracker or fibre pounder.

    The mosaic pins on the tube though....looks a bit like a ringomorces for the kids capguns.

    Sell it to the Americans. It's like a cowboy's belt knife.

    Don’t tempt with the forks!

    No idea who your knife is going to, but I assume male. Your knife is flamboyant and feminine, a Liberace. With a swedged clip point and softer curve to the tip, Bowie style, it would make a proper Lady knife. Mosaic pins and a scantily clad, but decorated, lanyard hole to complete. :)
