« Part 4: handle and colouring Part 5 of 5 Knives series Part 6: Winter is leaving Finland »

I would like a simple comment please. Pick A Pic. I did not take a photo of bird cherry 2 but you can pick this as well.

Each layer will have a strip of black leather between it like the first picture.

Pictures did not come out to well but i hope you get the idea on how they would look.

A large piece of bird cherry has been selected for the butt.
All fellow members of Lumberjocks have to do is decide over the next day or so what design they would like to see incorporated in to the knife handle.

Bird Cherry Butt

(not curly) Birch 2

Curly Birch 1

Bird Cherry 1

Apple 2

Apple 1

Looking forward to seeing what is decided. (remember you can do a bird cherry 2).
