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.   dancer5

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?
