I had fun making the knife, shaping the handle, working with wood was an interesting break from my leather wrapped 'normals'. There's more to finishing the metal in a wood handled knife, grinding the sides flat so I had a good glue surface under the wood scales, and finishing the edges- all those parts are hidden by the wrapped handle.
So its a first for me, but not the last- I'll do more wood handles. I already have the next one planned and sketched....
So let the chips fly, and Hapy Whittling,
