    It is a resin impregnated prickly pear cactus. I was not sure how it was going to turn out, but it polished up pretty nice.

    Yeah it looks real nice. Did you do the re-handle?

    Holy brisket, a prickly pear handle?! Put that on a D2 barbeque knife and I bet I could sell those like hotcakes here in Texas! Do tell where you got it. Did you make it?

    Dave-I still have a long way to go to get my handles even close to the hiro you did for me, but yes I re-handled this one.

    Eamon-I got the scales from Ankrom Exotics, they do some pretty cool stuff with all sorts of cactus and resins. They also have some pretty nice burls and stabilized woods to choose from. In speaking to Pat Ankrom, if I remember right, he has these made for him buy a guy in Texas.

    I don't know about that, this handle looks real good to me.
