    I am starting this to get an idea of what people would like to see on these knives. We will be doing a run of Talisong's with inlayed handles, they will be the size of the original Talisong. Things we have talked about is doing inlays like ivory,stag,lightning strike cf, damascus, timascus/mokuti. What blade shapes would you like to see? With blades done in standard stainless and stainless damascus. We have been giving this some thought and would like to go all out on these. We also talked about making these accessible to everyone, these are the things we have been talking about. I would like to here any thoughts and suggestions. You should see these around October.

    We are still working this out, my idea was to do some sort of lottery on at least some of the knives. We are both making a list of options we want on these and will start gathering material a.s.a.p
