Simple and first class ! In my opinion, can you try one with less shiny bolster, a light grey would make transition between blade and wood ?
I love effects on titanium liners.

Thank you.
Yes, in fact for my current project I'm using a bolster made of the same damascus used in the blade to achieve just that effect.  I'll post work in progress shots.

What about a titanium matching with liners ?

That's a cool idea.  
Food for thought.

I'm normally not a fan of the American tanto, but that blade profile looks pretty sleek. I'm too used to seeing blocky things like Strider's tanto blades - think the only tantos I can stand are Emersons, though I am not fond of their chisel grinds.

Thanks, that means a lot especially given your position on Tanto blade geometry in general. Yeah, they're not for everyone.
