Here's a picture showing some of the file work & dovetailed bolsters that hold the wood scales in from lifting and a few other randon pic's.Fatman":cspmkig9 said:Hawker your work is very beautiful! I would love to see the file work on the back of the blades.
This handle is made out of Wendge wood. Kind of resembles Bog Morta which i would like to get my hands on to try to make a knife handle out of. The steel is ATS-34 that i hand sand using 150-2000 grain wet sandpaper folded over a butterknife then buff with my bench grinder/buffer.
Here's a little better picture of my first 224 Layer Damascus Bowie that i made that shows the random pattern damascus a bit clearer. The handle on this one is Cocobolo with a buffalo horn and brass spacer. The small drop point below it is one i made for a wedding gift out of ATS-34 w/Brass & Bocote handle.
