Dave (ecchef) bumped you back! :razz:
What, only because he pays cash instead of wood? :ohmy: :wink: Just kidding, of course...
Stefan's wood is better than cash:Ooooh:
Here is Dave's knives, something a little different here. :smile1:
Oh that ironwood handle is something after my own heart.
Stefan, That ironwood handle is outrageous, beautiful, elegant, gorgeous, its perfect!!! I can only aspire to someday make a handle half that beautiful.
Stefan, is that by any chance the same sourced ironwood that you just sent me? :)
Dave, nope, the handle here is a 'plain' ironwood piece with a nice color, just a good quality. What I sent you is ironwood burl, at least two steps above this one here. I don't remember whether it was called exhibition grade or not. But it has some very nice dark lines in addition to the burl, that should make some great Western handles.
Just taking a short break right now, I am covered in saw dust... Mixed results so far today, not happy with a few of the ones I am working on. We'll see... But I am working on the mother of all ironwood handles :biggrin2: Not ready for showing, yet, but it should be done next weekend.
