    Handle:first try

    ive learned alot of things after just the first go at a wa handle but im happy with the way it came out. its a thin g10 fuerrle with cocobolo then g10 and then maple burl. its slightly tapered and the maple burl is the back of the handle. a little different design i might of been too ambitious for the first try.

    Looks good.

    Now comes the hard part-mounting it.
