WOW!!! This is one of the Prettiest, most elegant engraved knives I have ever seen. Joe Kious made this great "Dead Bug" model custom knife with some amazing Black Lip Pearl inlays. The Pearl is fantastic! CJ Cai, one of my favorite engravers in the World then totally outdid himself. This has to be CJ Cai's nicest engraving I have ever seen and I have owned quite a few of them. The Geisha/Samurai Theme is very elegantly done and the colors and flowers are amazing. CJ says there are about 500 inalyed flowers in this piece. The coverage is 100%. This being the first time I have ever seen on a "Dead Bug" Model by Joe KIous. CJ had to invent an engraving tool so he could get in the curved areas at the top of this model. The work is just incredible. If you ever wanted to own a Joe Kious knife, this is it!
