    Hi everbody!
    Fisrtable, excuse me for my english level!

    I'm a new apprentice knife customer, since one year i decided to try to make handles by myself.
    After some tries with low quality blades i started the experience with a 150 mm blue steel mukimono by watanabe.
    After two failures, i finished this blade two weeks ago, i should share my result with other passionates persons.

    some pictures of my first try, a box tree handle with black buffalo horn collar:

    Welcome to the forum!

    And no need to apologize about your language skills. I can assure you, your English is better than my French.
