Help me choose! My latest knife project is nearly complete. As a final touch, I will bezel set some small cabochons, in silver, over the handle pin. I am deciding between lapis lazuli, black onyx, and malachite as shown next to the handle pin hole on the far right. Any suggestions on the stone type and the reason for your choice? .

Christmas is rapidly approaching and it takes awhile to get knives out the door. If you would like to purchase knives as gifts the sooner the better as I may not be able to finish them in time if you wait to long!
