I've redone the math after shopping around, and think I can actually lower prices some on the pieces now that I can get the material a little cheaper. Initial investments such as etchant can be reused and I've improved some in efficiency They should be around $20 less per piece, and though it's not much, every little bit helps:)

As usual, I ran out of the necessary light to get a decent pic. This is Devin Thomas's Razorwire pattern. It really does look like it, too:) These are neat pieces, and deserve better pics to show off their detail and pattern, so stay tuned, and I'll replace them with better pics tomorrow:)

Heavily etched Raindrop Damascus Hammerhead that received similar treatment as the Reptilian pictured below. I'm thinking about making both finishes available in future offerings, and will likely refer to this finish as Antique.
I'm really beginning to favor this finish; it really is even better in person.
I usually try to keep back a piece to "experiment" with, and this is one of those. I etched this one deeply, and then satinized the finish, giving it a brighter appearance. This one turned out really nice. The finish I can only describe as "pearlescent".

The pic above is the latest pic of the reworked shiny piece that appears on the right in the two pictures below. It's much sharper now than I had it originally.
