Claudio gave me permission to copy this for my website.
I am posting a copy here so you will not have to leave the forum.

These photos and his comments show how he sculpts the handles on his fighters.

Molding a Burl Source's wood
Hello friends, a few days ago I received a Burl's wood, who very kindly sent me to Argentina, I am very happy because have an excellent stabilized.
Here I show you some photos of the process for our handles because many times I have wondered about this.

Jaja .. If it is beef fat, desempasta pulley and leaves the surface much better. Try it!

OK the beef fat thing was crazy(and very argentine, I might add). But other than that, I get from this that basically, he's really patient and talented and did it all by hand. Nice.
