    my first nogent handle

    Hi all,
    Here's my first attempt at a nogent style sab handle. The original knife is a find from an antique store a few months back. It's from my Raoul Sab? thread asking if others had come across that name. Well, the handle was split so i figured it would be a good candidate. I was careful when taking the original apart so as not to damage the ferrule. and was able to reuse it. The new wood is african blackwood. The original is.. very porous and seems to take a stain very deeply...
    here are pictures:

    figured some would be curious to see an older nogent's guts;


    I see why they call it a rat tail;


    new handle;


    made sure to capture some of the light wood in the handle...curious to see how it would come out;




    like a birth mark;

    Wow! Great job! Nice to see you kept the original ferrule too.

    Great work! Does the balance have changed because of the new handle?
