Have you ever seen a chiseled edge on granite? Do you like it? I like it for a rustic, Non-Traditional look.

    I personally like it but think it to be better on an overhanging bar without an immediate cupboard below it!. If it hung over the cupboard a bit it would look better. Just my opinion!

    I have seen the same look as a frame for a mirror in a bathroom and it worked in that application as well.

    I have lived New England rustic, American yard sale to long.Id be afraid of cutting myself on the edges, cleaning would be hard............nope not for me..

    I think it's a cool look, but I prefer the idea of using remnant granite -- pieces that would otherwise have been tossed -- to cutting granite to achieve that look. We did a fun article about a Minneapolis design/build firm that uses remnant granite

    I like it, but it reminds me of my parents tombstone!

    I love it. But I have grandkids and that could be harmful to kids.

    Maybe if it wasn't as ragged (or jagged?). Like others, I'd be concerned about scratches. If the sharp edges were buffed out a bit ... kinda like tumbled stone, I think I'd like it better.

    A few years back I built some custom Jatoba Window frames for a client, this was in a big fancy 1.5 M dollar home that was also undergoing a big remodel. In the kitchen they had new granite counters with this chisel edge...not quite as sharp as shown

    It fits in well with the copper vessel sink. I like the style of it, but not sure about the comfort of it.

    I see what you mean Four Season, however, I think if it were smooth it would look unfinished but by it being chiseled, that's what gives it the "fashion".

    Looks unfinished to me - but you know I have absolutely no indoor fashion sense :)
