    I remember we used to use the torch to lightly scorch wood in high school...it would scorch the different layers at different rates and make a variegated pattern...never thought about using it on other natural materials.

    Cool idea Devin!

    I wonder if it smells funky when you do that?

    Gorgeous grain in the iron, like watery ripples.

    Putting the mokume on the head of the handle bolts. Dry fitting the handle scales.

    After we finish the front of the scales, we can glue everything up.

    Thanks for following.

    Love and respect

    The tang looks slightly hollowed out, is this correct? If so, what's the benefit(s)?

    It's to hold more epoxy. If everything is too flat, it squishes out the glue.

    Nice, just as I had thought. Looks like I'm picking up on some things around here! Thanks, Hoss
