Decided to make a chefs knife for wedding gift for my daughter and she used it as her cake knife also. Damasteel, Blackwood, stabilized Spalted Maple, and Purple G10. Left tang proud. The spalted maple is from a tree in our back yard we had cut down that she used to have a rope swing in. Bolsters are Blackwood. Handle was just temp pinned in the pics.

You did a great job. The etched full tag looks awesome and must have been less-than-trival to finish the handle and mount it fully finished on the etched blade.

That is some maple your backyard produces!

Yeah I was cutting it up for firewood and I noticed a bunch of it had crazy spalt in it so I cut 2 blocks 8x8x12 and sealed them up for 2 years before cutting into knife size blocks and sending to K&G. I should have cut more.
