Hi, This is the project knife that I bought a couple of months ago. I know I am gonna change the handle but I was still figuring out what material is the best.
Finally, I have Cocobolo that is not that too bad or too boring, so I decided to use it.

This is how it looks before.





After Taking off the scale, I install it with a Fake Brass Bolster. Since I am not gonna rough use it, I think with a hidden pin and Epoxy, it will be good enough.





It is not finished yet, I will need to do final sanding and buffing and also oil the wood.
Hopefully, I will be able to keep the Kuro Uchi intact.

This looks great! Wonderful work! Did you use some g10 between the tang and the scales?
Nope, just some brass sheet I JB Weld it to the Wood, it also work as piece to hold the brass bolster.

Nice! The contours work really well with that wood don't they.
I guess, before i though it will be a plain jane straight grain. after resawing the scale, there is some black gradient to make a bit of contrast. the contours are just a little bit of reference from Alex Horn and Don Nguyen handle. yet somehow the grain turns out great with the shape.
