B&T please critque

Hope the picture turns out, been having a hard time getting pic to upload. Birdseye Bocote scales sanded to 600 and buffed, 01 tool steel taken to 800, still need to polish and sand some more, picture does not do it justice, best finish I have put on a blade to date, satin finish with no scratches, I sanded the handle by hand starting with 100 to get the shape ending at 600. If the picture turns out I will post a couple more for you all to critique my work.

Thank you, Carl

trying another pic, I forgot to mention I put some file work on the blade as well and made the matching sheath for this knife.

Looks pretty good from what I can see. Almost like a caper. I'd like to see it more close up, maybe with camera @ horizontal with the knife filling the frame. But as I said, from what I can see I like it!

The first pic is pretty grainy. But the others are decent. Nice looking knife 😎👍

Looks real nice, is it smaller than it looks? How wide is the blade at the ricasso? Judging by the corks I would say inch and a quarter? Hard to see the detail.

Just set up a google picture account and link to it. I found I can bring images from my Flickr account here, just right click, copy link address and paste at insert image in the bar above, same for Google Photos.
Or link from here to there.
