    When you run out of knives, nothing is safe!!!!
    I put a silky oak(lace wood)handle on a palette knife as well but drilling a hole through it as you have done was a *****- so curious what drill bit you used?

    I use Milwaukee brand bits from Home Depot. It wasn't really a problem.

    It's a Jerry Garcia tribute handle. You might be on to something. HA

    Does look very comfortable too.
