Thread: My first knife handle

  1. #1

    My first knife handle

    I´ve never been pleased with my nakiri´s handle so I decided to use it for my first re-handle experiment.
    The result is far from perfect but I´ve learned some important lessons and the new handle is much better than the one it replaced.


    The wood is hawthorne.

    I must get better drill bits, a belt sander and drill press (?). Doing this with hand tools was not easy.

    I really like the wood you used. That hawthorne has a nice worm look to it.

    Be well,

    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    Looks great! Keep it up. I started with hand tools too. Looks a lot better than my 1st.
