    This time I completed the Misono Swedish Hankotsu I got from Salty quite a while back.

    Look Ma! New shoes!!

    Not perfect but nothing handmade will ever be. Yet still an improvement over the stock handle and I feel it came out better than the last one. So progress is good too right? Also, I was able to track the wood type down from Craig Stevens it's some beautiful elm burl that came out quite nicely. What do y'all think?

    I like the look of the handles. The liners remind me of Dave's re-handles. That's a lot of extra work to get in that contrast. Is that the same G-10? I hope to one day be able to do something like this. It looks like a great re-handle.

    I definitely studied Dave's handle to achieve the same liner look. Whether I actually executed it the same as him, I surely doubt it. I found out it's not G-10 but simply called "fiber" liner material from Jantz. Whatever that means. I just hope this puppy stays together now.

    Lookin good. One more step forward and there's no looking back. Knife making has no known cure.

    Good luck

    Awesome. Great job on the handle. And I love the burl choice. I scored a couple sets of this stuff and have not tried any of it yet. Thanks for sharing. Devin is right. Theres no known cure for the addiction!

    Cannot wait to watch this. I can imagine it feels great to do it yourself.
