Just trying to keep my sanity. Worked on this for a couple of weeks a little at a time.

I go to the doc on Thursday to see when I can go back to work.

Curly maple handle with paper micarta ferrule and end cap.

Thanks for your support.

Love and respect

I hope you will get good news from your doc, Hoss! And that's a nice result of 'not-working' in your picture ;)

Looks great, as always, Devin. I really like the vintage feel to the handle.

I guess I like micarta after all. Man that looks good. Great that you're staying busy. Good luck Devin.

As someone who has recently returned to work after 2 months due to ankle surgery, I know what it feels like to go a bit stir crazy in the house. I wish you all the best and a speedy recovery process.

Hoss....seriously...that is the best looking handle I've ever seen. It's making me reconsider copper/stainless spacers and mokue.

Is that stainless clad?

Thanks everyone, I originally posted that I was going in on Thursday, but the appointment was today because of Independence Day.

The doc says that I can start working a little now but that it will still be three months or so before I'm fully healed.

That's easily the nicest curly maple handle I've seen. I hate curly maple! But I'd buy that one in a heartbeat. :thumbsup:

I just looked at it again and I really like the color of the micarta. Reminds me of bloodwood but probably nicer to work with.

My wife loved those red accents. She used to have a car in the same color, brought back some memories.

I think as reds go, this is the nicest (coming from somebody who never used colors on his handles). Love the maple, one of my favorite woods.

San mai looks great (should go without saying)

That is purdy! Is this core steel a carbon, or stainless?

DevinT

It is a tool steel with some alloy, one we are trying out. It will patina.
