    Got bored so I....

    Decided to re-handle my super cheap paring knife. The handle was broken for some time and numerous attempts to fix it had failed so I grabbed a scrap piece of wood I had and went at it. I used Amboyna Burl and solid brass rod for the pins. The handle still needs another couple coats of Tung Oil and some finish sanding but you get the idea. There is one little piece missing on one side. It will be filled shortly.

    I really like how it turned out and it's a better handle then this blade deserves but I had a great time with this little project. Just a note that other than a drill there were absolutely no power tools used on this project at all. I hope you all enjoy the pics as much as I enjoyed the project.

    Thanks for all the kind words guys. I'll have to try a wa handle next maybe. The only "nice" knives I have are wa handles.

    Okay, so I'll ask - how did you cut and shape the Amboyna without power tools? Nice job by the way.
