    Been a while since I did a WIP

    Here is a bit of a WIP on a little knife I am working on, comments welcome!

    Starting materials. Bog oak, mammoth tooth, maple dowell, fiber spacers, and a hunk of black buffalo horn

    Handle materials assembled, at this point the tang slot is in place, and the dowel is inside the handle, to provide an extra mechanical bond.

    Next, I made a dummy tang, same size and shape of the one on the knife. To burn in the exact fit.

    OK, ok. I'll start using my work table properly.

    This is really nice. That blue mammoth tooth never ceases to amaze.
