    Getting some cleaning on the stones, taking it to sharp
    Also, starting to get a handle mocked up. So far, Blackwood ferrule and Waterfall Bubinga


    Hoping to get some more done tonight, but have more engraving work to do.

    So i got a few minutes to do some shaping on the handle. This thing is a tank...I seriously think it could be used to take down trees. I dont have dimensions on the handle yet, as i am still polishing, only at 1000 and soaking in oil so far. I have to say, of all the wood i have used, the depth and chatoyance of waterfall bubinga is easily among the best. I used a piece of mammoth ivory for the spacer, and decided to do a butt cap also but wanted to do something kinda cool and did the bark on the butt.
