    Mailbox cleared!!! Actually, it was a pretty bold pattern, but both knives were smaller. I would stack at least one more time for a finer starting pattern for a kitchen knife blade.

    Managed to get some quick pics of the finished blade this morning.





    Got all the handle bits drilled/slotted and flat and square, also made an assembly jig so I can grind it dry, etch and assemble. Still not 100% which bits i'm using. I'll get some pics when i've decided.
    Here's the Chestnut burl, I think it will go nicely with a squirrel tail

    And the pattern for the ferrule/endcap

    That could be it till xmas, have a good one everyone.

    Evening all, some handle progress. i'll be brief as my computer is playing up.
    Jig assembly to grind prior to epoxying has made this job easier.




    More to follow when i've sorted out my puter.

    Some details I got with this rather nice piece of stabilized horse chestnut.

    "This block came from a tree planted in 1727 on the Duke of Buccleuch's Northamptonshire estate. Nearly 300 years old. They have the planting records of every tree ever planted on the estate.."
