This was for me by a fellow forum member; greasedbullet.

He's been making some interesting stuff; hopefully he'll share a pic or two....

Bevels on the wrong side of that necker :nunchucks: , but it does look pretty cool, very ninja! I am still waiting on two blades from Peter's Heat Treating before I can update my WIP thread.

Due to the new subforum rules, I won't post pics of the neck knife, as it's not kitchen knife related...sorry.

Thanks for the new subforum, guys!

No Chop is left handed so I made it lefty friendly. Thanks for the compliments.

This is why I will not be sharing pics for the time being. I have been told not to. I will be sharing in the future I promise. This is probably going to be my new favorite subforum.

:thumbsup: Thread, NO ChoP!
:thumbsup: Subforum
:thumbsup: Work!

I realize pictured knife doesn't get much love on this forum but here goes anyway, my (first) contribution to the thread. I just re-handled the 270 suji. Cocobolo, Yellow spacer, Alum rivets. I'm usually a fan of simpler handles, but I tried keeping it somewhat playful on this one.





Keep the thread alive!

Nice, andre s. What is the knife?

Here is my 8" Forgie with:

African Blackwood scales
Blue fiber spacers
1/8" daisy mosaic pins in brass/ nickel

added a little octo-shape this time....

Got five more done...

Zebrawood
Wenge
Padauk

I found that Zebrawood really stinks like zebra dung!

And, I probably wont work with Padauk again, as I found it splinters way too easily. I had to sand down the edges far more than I intended; very fragile wood.

I was surprised at how dark the wenge turned out as well....

Wenge will turn almost black when oiled. It also darkens over time naturally.

Looking good, my man! Zebrawood is nice to work, besides the sorta funky smell. I just used some oak, and it reminded me of an old workshop in the best possible way.

Those are particularly nice.
Sweet complement to the handle! With such rich grain, it's nice to see the whole "motif" kept simple.
good stuff
