This was my first knife build. The knife itself is just a kit that you can get. The scales (hadles) were traced from blanks that came with the knife kit. There made from quarter sawn sycamore. Cut out, roughed out, and then fine tuned with a dremel and hand sanding. The finish was a cpl coat of danish oil, then 3 coats of arm-r-seal, then wet sanded to polish it up. I can see these getting addicting to make, the kits are cheap and there are a multitude of design options especially if you get into metal filing as well.
