    Handles

    A birdie wispered there's a demand for Dalman handles, and it's been on my mind as well. There's been some things bugging me about selling them separately, but I'm working on standardasing a "real" ferrule and predrilled construction with masur birch and reindeer antler, with a birch bark spacer. So those are on the horizon.

    Give ya 50 sek and I'll tell you. You did good sir, magnus has trained you well. Seriously though that soulds sweet, like I wouldn't buy one because I'm going to be swimming in a pool of Dalmans soon, but for those poor kids that didn't get an Dalmans for Christmas, maybe this will help quell their rage.

    And I bought a lathe

    If you saw that knife Magnus did ( ) that's my prototype "real" wa-handle. things went smoothly and I was pretty happy. So more handles like that, but probably with masur and birch burl are what I'm looking to make.

    Referring to a post from January in the "Heads up - store restocking."-Thread:

    And I was lucky to snatch one!

Main reason for the handle change was that the original handle felt a bit too thick in my hand. And then I had this gorgeous handle from Robin at hand...

    THANK YOU SO MUCH, Robin! Tack så mycket!!!
