    Talking Dovo BQ in Hunter Orange, and a Boker Extra Hollow in Micarta

    Here are the first two I've finished this weekend. The BQ is mine, and was inspired by a set of Hunter Orange from Undream a couple years back. I was just waiting for "the day". It's got Niag hardware to keep with the streamlined look.

    The Boker is from Dllandry, and is part of a set (I just haven't finished it's twin yet). She's in Ivory paper micarta, and is complete with brass pins and a honey ox wedge. Buffed out to near mirror. I really like this one. I'll finish the twin this week most likely.

    Thanks for looking

    Both of those look great. Scales are well suited for those blades.

    Very well executed, I like the slimmed down look with the Micarta/G-10's myself too.. seems you have to get them near 1/10" to get the flex right and then everything seems to just come together

    Yup..I agree. The g10 being dense I found pretty heavy. I probably could thin these out a bit more. I'll take a few shaves and see. The balance feels pretty good in the hand so far.

    The orange is nice but the ivory micarta is beautiful. Excellent work on both.
