I am a knife guy, and that is a BEAUTIFUL knife! I always carry a knife with me (unless I'm flying) and while most of my knives are folders, I always appreciate a beautiful knife and that one certainly qualifies.

Beautiful work Mike! What is the black spacer material? I really like how you did the segmenting. I'd like to see a closeup of the mosaic pin. Did you make it?

Hope I'm not out of place by answering for him, but I happen to be up! Don't know where exactly he got his, but this is one place to get them.

Steve,
The spacer material is G10. Often used for liner material in knife handles. It has its place in pens as well as the picture shows. This pen was made with leftover material from another knife handle. The mosaic pin can be made easily enough. Plenty of you tube how to on this topic. However, I purchase mine from knife making supply stores online. There is also a place in pen making for mosaic pens. I put them in a kit less pen I never quite finished.
