« Part 5: Your Decision... Pick a handle.. Part 6 of 5 Knives series Part 7: I went to the woods. »

After .. light flooding a shoulder injury.. glasses .. -32..3 foot of snow.. I finally have a workshop sort of warm enough to work in.. so i went to woodwork i town and started on the handles. Did some shaping in my home workshop. Some one kindly posted me some sections of wood.. I used the purple heart and the colour is great!!

Here is the start of the first knife which will be all mine!!

so the materials involved are Bird Cherry – Curly Birch – Purple Heart – Elk horn.

The brown plate looking things that the knife is resting on was wooden pizza plates 1€ each from the flea market (think they might make good bands). will post some pics of them for an ident..
