    Love the look of this one. Saya's are looking pretty nice as well.

    Thread, NO ChoP!
    Subforum
    Work!

    I realize pictured knife doesn't get much love on this forum but here goes anyway, my (first) contribution to the thread. I just re-handled the 270 suji. Cocobolo, Yellow spacer, Alum rivets. I'm usually a fan of simpler handles, but I tried keeping it somewhat playful on this one.





    Keep the thread alive!

    New saya work

    Got five more done...

    Zebrawood
    Wenge
    Padauk

    I found that Zebrawood really stinks like zebra dung!

    And, I probably wont work with Padauk again, as I found it splinters way too easily. I had to sand down the edges far more than I intended; very fragile wood.

    I was surprised at how dark the wenge turned out as well....

    Wenge will turn almost black when oiled. It also darkens over time naturally.

    Looking good, my man! Zebrawood is nice to work, besides the sorta funky smell. I just used some oak, and it reminded me of an old workshop in the best possible way.
