    Do you know what type of blade you want? IMO a tanto would be sweet.

    Don't know if it's possible but I like te mix of old school and new - id go with something like ti liners and bolsters ano'd bronze with carbon fiber scales, then I'd drill out the typical hole pattern through the ti an cf and inset brass eyelets. would also be a cool combo with green micarta.

    What ever you choose can't wait to see it

    Fuck man. I read the OP thinking, "Hell yeah offer some suggestions, this will be badass if he picks mine"!

    Start thinking "hmmmm, what would I order myself if I could have anything"..?

    Same problem as you I guess. I really dont know. So many choices/options. No matter what I bet it comes out awesome though.

    Good luck.

    I'VE been waiting to see another bottle opener on a knife like the chuck Swiss army Bali!! Talk about unique. And if he has the means, bearings in the pivots. Maybe full serrations on the blade. Or a straight razor blade like the DDR that was up for sale for a while starting a 950. Think outside the bun my man. Good luck.

    Filipino Ginunting or a Chinese Dao shaped blade. Go big 4 1/2 to 5 inches to get the full glorious shape of the blade.

    Micarta is always nice with anodized titanium. Just choose colors that don't clash. Matt does a great green, but just because he can do a great green doesn't mean you should pair it with any ol' color micarta. Sometimes it's best to leave the titanium natural too.

    Go latchless with mosaic pins on one handle for identification.

    James,

    Go with a nice clean bronze anodization, ironwood scales. If you want to step the materials up a notch, Nichols' Moku-Ti always works. It's the one I would have wanted. Matt's inlays are top notch, carbon fiber is a bit sterile for my tastes after having it on so many knives. I prefer a piece of wood or micarta these days. Definitely opt for S30V or some other stainless steel.

    I can't tell you what to do for blade pattern.. that one always stumps me. These days I always usually just go for a weehawk tanto out of juts sheer indecisiveness.

    I like his tang ears, a lot of the time for flippers sake they're completely absent but on Konger's bowie, his tang ears were kept short, but they were still nice.

    I'll help a bali-bro out. If you want we can switch spots on Matt's list. That will give you more time to think:manganr:

    Go big man...

    Blade - 5" damascus susuwat or upswept pira (his bolo is pretty awesome also)

    Handle - Blue damascus with brown jigged bone inserts

    Latch/clip - use the same blade material
