I thought I would post a few pictures of three custom Jade handled knives I finished yesterday.  They are all very complex handles so they were a real challenge.   dancer27

Very nice complex work Michael. Did you grind into the bolsters to get it all flush? Fantastic looking knives, was it a commission for the maker?

All of the metal and stone is sanded and polished at the same time.....   dancer27

The knives were brought to my studio for  the Jade work.

Those are really stunning. Love the flow of the handles and blades.
