    Niiiiiice, it's going to get even better with some awesome patina

    When doing the handle do you make a single piece and then split it in half, or make both sides separately?
    Also any chance of a choil/grind geometry shot?

    So that's where that nice amboyna burl went!

    Nice job, as usual, Pierre.

    If I don't see pics of this knife with a solid, naturally formed, across the blade patina, Imma be mad.

    Excellent work as usual.

    @TB I do both sides separately. Drill the holes, pin together, then set the radius an clean up the bolster faces, pin, epoxy and clamp, to the tang, then shape on the knife.

    This one shows off the color of the amboyna much better.
