    Hey Guys a little disclaimer about the handle. Every time I make a handle I learn something new. The lesson I learned with this one is to always use stabilized Snakewood. It has moved a bit and the joint at the ferrule is obvious you can feel the seam. After this passaround the handle is getting crushed in the vise, and replaced.I would like this to be about the blade and not the handle, as it is not an accurate representation of what I am currently making. That being said I would like you guys to be really rough on the handle. I am curious to see how the wood holds up.
