Whittler #1

So two of the blades in the previous post are little whittling knives.

I'm still working out what wood to use for the other one, but the first one has been glued and rough shaped already.

The handle is Yew wood underneath and Turkish Walnut on top. I wanted to do something a bit different for this one but couldn't think of something then I was inspired but the Carbon Fibre & Orange G10 handle I did and also Andy Roy's work. Andy has been stacking wooden handles like this for quite some time and I thought I should give it a go after the really positive response I got from the synthetic version I did.

The handle needs washing to raise the grain then more fine sanding to polish it all down, then have that repeated again and again until no more wood fibres lift. Then it'll be ready for an oil bath.
