    Not perfect but nothing handmade will ever be. Yet still an improvement over the stock handle and I feel it came out better than the last one. So progress is good too right? Also, I was able to track the wood type down from Craig Stevens it's some beautiful elm burl that came out quite nicely. What do y'all think?

    I like the look of the handles. The liners remind me of Dave's re-handles. That's a lot of extra work to get in that contrast. Is that the same G-10? I hope to one day be able to do something like this. It looks like a great re-handle.

    I definitely studied Dave's handle to achieve the same liner look. Whether I actually executed it the same as him, I surely doubt it. I found out it's not G-10 but simply called "fiber" liner material from Jantz. Whatever that means. I just hope this puppy stays together now.

    Lookin good. One more step forward and there's no looking back. Knife making has no known cure.

    Good luck

    Thanks Hoss!!

    Oh I almost forgot, I recorded the whole process so I can edit the footage for a video tutorial of sorts.

    great work Rick!
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.
