    Mother Nature has done some wondrous things to rock creating this Crazy Lace Agate. These pieces were found in Mexico and transformed into the slabs for a little slip joint. The depth and the colour are hard to capture but peering into the rock made me think of the Beatles Yellow Submarine movie. Psychedelic waves of colour and shapes.
    The knife itself has a 154 CPM blade and backspine and a 416 body with double integral bolsters. It is 3 1/4" closed and 5 3/4" open . It is a snappy little guy with Dellana Dots for an opening grip system.
