Thread: little different handle for the doctor

  1. #1

    little different handle for the doctor

    tried a butt cap on the western handle.

    Black ash burl, mokume, black paper micarta butt cap, bubble wrap with 3-V core.

    Thanks for looking.

    I like the butt cap. I havent seen 3V used in a kitchen knife before. What would you compare it to?

    3-V was made for toughness and wear resistance. 8 ouy of 10 for both toughness and wear resistance. Fine grain and carbide size. Semi stainless.

    No pic, but the end of the handle has a mokume Corby bolt.

    I would compare 3V to some kind of cross between a rock and glue.
