Carving a handle to shape

For a change, I've decided to carve the handle of this knife to shape. I've use a rasp or two as well.

I was prompted to try it when the wood was burning on the grinder as I didn't have a sharp belt.

The handle is made from cross-cut Turkish Walnut, so it's not the easiest going. Fun though.

As it started:

A little helper!


Another day:


It's going to be a slow job!

  3. Lets try this again. That looks like a comfortable knife in the hand. That squirrel better watch himself or he could end up the first test project for your new knife! :-)
