Default Almost finished

Got the brass pins in today and now just adding coats of tru-oil to the handle. I think I will make this one my hunting knife for now. Picture not real clear!

Thanks for the nice comments guys, you are very talented and it shows in your work. For me, this gives me unwind time from the rotating 12 hr shift work. Your guide information has been invaluable, thanks to both of you!

Here is one of those English damascus blades with desert ironwood handles. Grain is outstanding. Still have finish work to go but I like the look.

Desert Iron wood is really pretty. I have to be extra careful about breathing in the dust though. That and Cocobolo are the two that can really bother me. I see that you got a little more "artistic" with the shape of the wood as well.

wood has a distinct smell also. I don't know about artistic but something different. I liked working with the ironwood.

The smell always reminded me of manure.

I couldn't think what it was but you're darn close. Pretty nasty anyways.
