It’s always delightful to report one of our customer’s work!
The custom handle is elaborate work,It seems like a gemstone finish and nice balance custom knife!
Here is the customer message.
Handle is 135mm, made of African Padauk. Spacers are from 1/8” brass and G-10 around Inlace Abalone Acrylester. The collar is water buffalo horn. The weight of the brass and Abalone give it a perfect balance. The saya is also Padauk with border carved in. The gift box is pine, also handmade with finger joints. Handle and saya are finished with boiled linseed oil/wipe-on poly & carnauba wax.
It was made by Daniel C from United States.
