    Project AJI finished

    White steel plus Mopane-Mgurure handle and mahogany pinless saya with small mgurure cap.
    The tang hole finish is epoxy mixed with wood dust for perfect coloration.

    This is my first handle and also first saya project. Coated with linseed oil

    I used only hand tools for this one, apart of drill of course.

    Very nice! How long did it take you to carve them out?

    It took me around 20 hours on saya, but in days it was four.
    Handle was easier, it took maybe 15 tops, but that is cause i never worked with such a hard wood before, so one way it was harder, but on the other very rewarding
