A Bushcrafter in progress - Moose Antler & Blackwood

 The plan for this knife is to have the Moose Antler up front as a bolster and the African Blackwood at the back. I'm still trying to work out a way to have some light coloured pins to go in the Blackwood to mirror the antler - I think I'll be using Carbon Fibre pins in the antler, if I remember correctly!
 

The blade bevels still need finishing.

One side looks like this (and it's still not there!)



while the other side looks like this - lots of work to do here!


Hand polishing gives lovely grubby hands.  I really should treat myself to some more barrier cream!!


A bit of moose antler prep. Boy does this stuff smell when worked! It's like burnt hair!
