Which one of these do you think looks best, the burled or the streaked pattern?

I like the burl. It has just a bit more character.

Both are pretty nice, but I'd personally lean towards the burled one.

Both are elegant. I would be happy with either once the other was gone. Regardless of which you choose you will really like best after you sell the other. Within a day or 2 you won't worry about whether or not you made the right decision.

The burl is fantastic and fascinating. The other is fine as well.

The Burl is sweet. Keep that one!
Here is the one I got. A very nice example.

JET79 and J1890,
Both of your knives look amazing. I love how many different looks Desert Ironwood has. I hope we get getting pictures posted here.
