I like the 2nd last one :)

My mind is telling me no 2 from the top.....

The black looks a dash busy, like in your face....

I am with the DIODE RAVER on this one, 2 from the bottom looks good.

Why not just lean them out, the Black liners that is, to G10 liner thickness, less in your face no?

Like the look

True, but I am attempting to move away from the "conventional" method & looks....want something err...different...

Too many handles have black spacers....

Thank you for the honest thoughts though.

What about no 2 with a black spacer right at the back?

Now my brain is confused....

Or with second from the bottom, make the second spacer a lighter color... Or use three spacers with the outer spacer being black and inner spacer same color as the front part...?

It is done....

Note the blue & green hues after sanding.....reflects different shades light depending.

Balance is at the choil.

Now to sharpen it - 14 DPS, no micro bevel this time round - need to test the edge performance for chipping first.
