My uncle brought back a slab of lignum vitae from the Dominican Republic a few years back. He since gave up wood working so he decided I should get the wood. It
was his birthday on Monday so my dad thought it would be nice if we got him a knife and I could re-handle it for him with the wood he'd given me.
I used the sap wood for the ferrule which has some specs of green and the heart wood for the main part of the handle. To add a little colour I decided to use a dark green dyed box elder spaceer surrounded by copper and light green dyed maple spacer.
