Very nice. I bet you wouldn't even know it was on your belt.

Using copper on the handle trim plus the copper pins gives a very classy appearance. The extra large choil encompassing both the blade and handle is an unusual choice. I'd be interested in knowing if you developed this element primarily for design considerations or for function. ::tu::

Thank you
The choices are aesthetic but the handle must be comfortable in hand it is a priority

Very nice design and workmanship can. Is it truly comfortable in hand given its thinness? It seems like there would be two point contact with the hand but no contact with the palm. I wish I had the opportunity to test it both for comfort and to see how light it feels. Nice work!
