Here are mine. I like that the Desert Ironwood one has a burled look. I think it is kind of unique.

http://www.engravingextraordinare.com/ I was looking for a while to see about getting scroll work done on a knife and could not decide. I ended up getting two whalers when they first came out and thought OK let's try it. I was more than pleased with the end result.

I ended up with an extra Desert Ironwood #46 Whaler. I mailed it off and 4 months later, I got this gem back. Mammoth Ivory with superb fluted bolsters. Here is a few pictures:
