    Lovely smell, isn't it? For a minute I thought it was best scent until working with genuine and Argentinian Lignum Vitae. My shop smelled like roses for weeks. It even overpowered the smell of steel on the grinder and micarta on the band saw.

    Great looking handle by the way... I love the ferrule even though the texture of fossilized teeth tends to make me queasy at times.

    Looks great! Is that amboyna stabilized or some of the same stuff you used before? I don't know how it smells but it sure does feel awesome in hand.

    Also, how's the geometry on this one? Is this similar to your most recent knife or earlier knives?

    Profile is looking gooooood!

    If you loved a drilled mammoth tooth air freshener hanging in you car I would be really worried Great handle, as usual. Love the contrast in color and patterns between the wood and the tooth and the spacer brings that out even better.
