Default Knife - New designs with cool materials!

Thought I'd share a few recently finished builds with cool materials and mixes:
First was one I took resin/cholla cactus with turquoise and cut to inlay copper and more turquoise. Decided to use mosaic copper pin with regular copper pins to set it off and I like it but kinda have mixed feelings if it's too "gaudy"? The client loved it so I guess that's all that mattered really.

Second is one that's a new design for me I'm not sure how to describe yet -kind of a mix between a small fighter/skinner. The handle I'm excited about though. Fordite inlayed with red spacers! What's fordite? American Agate! The Dodge Chrysler plant used to spray their cars on rails and the paint would build up and harden on the factory floor. The floor was dug up and sold off in pieces to give the wild look of swirls and such with different colors!

Last was a dessert ironwood bolstered fossilized mammoth tusk "Outback" design and I just always love mammoth except sanding it - uggg -Gave a different shape to the backend that I'm a fan of using in the future. (this is similar to one that was auctioned off at the HSLR for fundraising for the kids and brought a nice return we were proud of)

I've been teaching myself how to make knives the last few months. Not nearly as intricate as these, but I'll start posting them.

Yours are awesome!
