Default Special knives

Haven’t made any like these in years. These were fun compound angled water buffalo horn bolsters with mother of pearl. The idea was to highlight the pearl as best I could and keep the rest looking like a classic design. A little bit of fine sanding and polishing left but 90% there. Really happy with the figuring in the pearl but I can’t seem to capture the coloring in photos.

I should clarify also...I say they are special knives only because of the reason they were made for a guy's wedding and his best man who happens to be his brother. I try not to self proclaims my own craft as special or amazing, beautiful, etc...just a little disclaimer cuz I didn't want it to come across the wrong way but am happy how it came out and enjoy sharing the pics. Thanks again!
