    Thanks it is semi-transparent so I used a dowell in hope of concealing the tang. I am going to try a pressure fit on one of my knives on this one.

    I like the amber.
    I played around with some years back and it was surprisingly easy to work with.
    Just don't overheat it.
    I shaped some pendant pieces and over time they developed a patina that made them look even better.
    Now my grand daughter has them......I think.

    For your daughter,
    get her an I Pad2 and she will forget all about the Amber.

    You need to get rid of that immediately, before your daughter finds out.

    I'll pm you my address...

    OK I really like pressure fitting it took me all of 15min to get this handle on. Just make a slot and hammer it on. I capped it with some epoxy like Takeda.
    Tinh I will let you know how the amber holds up

    OK, So now I like it even more. That looks amazing! The way you used that cocobolo, and how the grain of it is gives such a great flow to the whole knife!

    I dig how the flare of the butt of the handle counter balances (to the eye) the flare of the tip of the blade. Very nicely done!
