Terry Guinn of Seymour, Texas is a noted custom knife maker who has been making custom balisongs for several years now. When I asked him to make a balisong knife for me, I asked him to fulfill a long-time desire of mine. I have long loved amber. I think it's a beautiful and fascinating material. And I've long wanted a balisong with amber inserts.

Foolishly, Mr. Guinn said, "Sure, I can do that."

As he found out, amber is not an easy material to work with. It took a lot of time and effort on his part. Many trials. Many errors. But the knife is done and it is beautiful. And it is a pleasure for me to share it with you.
