    Here is a little update - choosing the design and material is tougher task that I though. While the design is still in works, the material was already chosen. So if everything goes fine this beautiful piece of Oregon Maple burl should be the main handle material:

    Hey Matus, did Ian recommend that wood to you or did you have to source it yourself?

    Ian recommended me the vendors (both are also vendors here on KKF). We then discussed what type of wood would fit the knife and what size will be necessary. That piece above is indeed on the larger side, but I just liked the structure & color.

    So - I chose the wood, but Ian then ordered it directly from the shop. Had I sourced the wood elsewhere it would have been OK too - I just did not have the need (or means) to do so. It would also have been an unnecessary complication because I am located on different continent than Ian

    Here I'm working on the shoulder. I'm using a diy guide to make sure the shoulder will be straight and flush when it meets up with the bolster.

    A cup of coffee and biscotti. Seriously. That.
    On the knife, I'll be attaching the bolster. Pics to come.

    Sounds good. I'll have a cappuccino, "butterbezel" and a "quarktasche" as soon as our cafeteria will be opened at 8'clock. Sadly - it is still just 6:30
