All the credit goes to Mike Henry, who did the work. All I did was buy the wood.

Very nice! Is that a 150 petty? What are the dimensions of the handle?

Tinh,

Yes, it's a 150mm.

The handle is 16.6mm x 18.8 at the ferrule; 20.8mm x 22.2 at the butt; 129.2mm long with a ferrule of 32.1mm.

Weight is four grams more than with the stock handle: 89g vs 85g. Balance is right at the ferrule, where the stock knife was blade heavy.
