ive learned alot of things after just the first go at a wa handle but im happy with the way it came out. its a thin g10 fuerrle with cocobolo then g10 and then maple burl. its slightly tapered and the maple burl is the back of the handle. a little different design i might of been too ambitious for the first try.

Did you predrill it?
I decided to skip predrilling for my Kono 240 rehandling and now suffering cause I haven't drilling bit long enough to make a deep hole :-\

Looks good.
Down the rabbit hole within the rabbit hole you go!
Now comes the hard part-mounting it.

Looks great, and I mean it. I throw a lot of worthless compliments around, and this ain't one of them! Haha. Really nice work!

NO ChoP!

I too like that you went out of the box, but still kept it classy. great job! And the mounting, drilling, slotting is where I have the most difficulty. I was thinking about getting a pen-blank drill vise before attempting another wa, but thought I'd refer to the pros first for some solid advise. Good luck, and can't wait to see it all mounted up!
