    Thanks all, handles are only rough shaped at the moment. I would have finished them today but yesterday I must have forgotten to put any hardener to glue on the copper bits.

    These are finished. I'm really pleased with the way the tapered diamond shape handles turned out. The Fork handle is wider than it is tall, which feels nice with a side grip on the fork, the knife is narrower than it is tall which feels really nice. Hope you like.

    There has been some impressive things posted today. This takes the cake.

    I am so stunned I'm logging off.

    Thanks John, I'm not sure where their moving, I'll find out, it will be near a naval base somewhere. Hopefully I'll get some shots of them in the box Tom is having made for them and if the box is nice hopefully have a future contact there for work like this.
    Here are some handle shots. I'm very pleased with these and certainly look to giving this option on work in the future. They take a bit longer I would have to work out some pricing.

    Thanks Judd, the more I look at that copper the more it looks like brass. Its an odd bar I grabbed at the scrap yard. I think it is brass but like 80% copper, which is unusual. It should look really nice after a few months when it dulls and gets a bit more bronzy looking.

    Heirlooms to be Will. Beautiful work.

    P.S. I guess I need to get one of the resident handle makers here to make me something with a red spacer, as they always jump out at me. Can you tell me what the red spacer material here is? Looks great.

    Thanks Johnny, its a red hard fiber material designed for knife handles. I thinks its called fiberous sheet, or something like that.
