Michael Fong- fixed blade

One of those unfinished blanks that I'd put in a beer mug/pen pencil holder and forgotten. Want to say this was ground back in '01 or 02'. Epoxied this up the other night with some scrap buckeye burl.

How usefull is a design like this? I can imagine its not that pleasent holding being so narrow in the palm and at the fingers?

Intended for light duty tasks. More along the lines of a slim fighter type. A bit big and heavy for a neck knife. Trying to decide on stitching up leather or use Kydex.

That same pattern with obsidian handle scales. Working the obsidian was tough, right up there with agate. I have to find my photo of that knife. The obsidian was orange so the handle was fairly vibrant contrasty.

Found a small version of the photo, kinda hard to see but a bit better color accuracy than the one on the auction site. Date stamp is 5/2001 so that puts it for the Blade Show West. Recall that it sold at the Vegas Classic in '02 or was picked up by a dealer at that show.
