Huge thanks to Matt and Ilya for this collaboration.

Since the damascus is already so rich in details and also because of the integral bolster I decided not to make a segmented handle construction like I usually do for my knives. Instead I focused my effort on the tang, filing a pattern and laminating the olive wood with a black and a solid brass liner to match the pins colors and materials. Overall I'm very pleased with how sleek the handle came out and I think it goes well with the blade!
