    CarboNext petty in cocobolo

    So I continue to supplying my friends and relatives with basic Japanese knives that could introduce them to the world of good kitchen knives. This time I've made a simple handle for a CarboNext 150mm petty.





    Cocobolo and ebony.
    I've made all the possible mistakes with this one. Holes for the pins were too big. Small hole between fibre spacer and tang. Made a few scratches with band saw that were too deep to be removed. And was too lazy to make a proper polish. Still it looks and feels ok, so I'm gonna leave it as is and try to do my best with next one.

    One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

    That is sooo nice. Did you follow the handle profile or change it a bit?

    Thanks!
    The profile mostly remained original, except for some minor curves.
    It's hard to screw up Cocobolo. I tried hard with all my mistakes, but it still ended up pretty well.
