Very impressive work, Jesse. I have difficulty imagining how you (or anyone else, for that matter) can successfully put such lovely, intricate patterns on the blade. (I don't think I could even draw the pattern with a magic marker!)

Very nice. Is the coloring that yellowish or is it a trick of the light?

Thanks!

The coloring is a slight trick of the light. I'm still working on my photography skills Wink

Thanks, Jesse!

That top pic is probably a pretty good representation. Cocobolo is a beautiful wood - can have some real neat patterns to it. It's the same wood used with copper spacers on the other seax I picked up from Jesse a while back.

Guys, we all know what polished silver looks like... and that's what Jesse has put around the grip towards the blade... This piece in hand would be even more brilliant.

Wish I could, brother... we'll have to see here this month if nobody snags it first.
