    Two More

    I havent posted any pics in a while, and I can use the practice. I managed to make a couple more. The Ironwood I did for a friend its the first time I rehandled a knife that wasn't mine. It was really nerve racking. I think it turned out pretty nice?? The Koa/Black Palm handle is for me I haven't decided what to put it on though. Let me know what you guys think

    Very nice work, does that ironwood handle taper down toward the blade, or is it just the pic? Either way, very catching!

    I'm ready to do the handle on a chef's knife that I'm making and these help with ideas. I started it with a piece of cocboloish wood, but didn't like the way it was going, and now it looks like a 1/4 inch bronze bolster and ebony wood.
    Really bad piucture:
