Very sharp looking ( no pun intended ) with the very dark sodalite offsetting the steel. how does that sodalite work?

How dose it work as far as durability?  Not sure, if it is dropped on a hard surface I will bet the stone will crack or break.( I dropped a nice cab in the shop last week and it ended up in three pieces) But otherwise the stone is harder than the metal and should be fine.

Great looking piece for sure.  In drops stone usually survives in a 110 as they tend to land on the bolsters.   I think I have about 50 to 60 110's being carried and so far no one has broken a scale that I know of. 

I do ALWAYS recommend Jade when I am told that the knife is intended for carry and use.

Micheal, I agree with jade for every day use. I have a toothpick with Wyoming jade that I have carried and used for a year and a half without any problems. I gave my daughter a knife with red and green moss agate and she broke it in three months. The scales were a little thin because of the knife design.
She leaned against a hard surface with the knife in her pocket. My son dropped a toothpick with jasper and broke a scale, I gave him anouther with pet wood he has had no problems. I dropped a buck 110 with African blue lace that I was all most finished with and cracked a scale
I have sold or gave away about 15 others without any complaints
