Wow, what a polish on that Jade.  I will have to try that technique.  It has been a long time since I posted in the knives after I did my first knife.  I had so much fun and Michael had given me some tips on the material I was going to use so I took his advice and switched to Jade. He is a fantastic resource.
I love the single bolster on the Case.  I have looked since viewing and Michael calls them "barehead"?  are these available or do you have to grind off the rear bolster of a regular Case trapper or Peanut?  If you do grind off the rear bolster is it more critical in the cupping and grinding of the pin that holds the knife together?  I like the look so much more that a double bolster knife and yours is a wonderful example of how pretty it can be.  :Worthy:
Thanks for sharing.

I've always liked case knives and jade.  You put the 2 together and did a great job.  Thanks for posting.

With Agate there is no need to wet/dry during grinding or polishing.  The reason for doing it with jade it because of the fibrous nature of jade and achieving a better polish.  Std grinding techniques work fine with agates.
