I didn’t actuall make these handles, my 12 yo son did. This was a knife blade and sheath kit from Woodcraft that I purchased for my son for a birthday present.

He made the handles from Sapele and we used brass rod for the pins instead of the aluminum ones that were supplied with the kit. The handle is finished with Waterlox Original finish and wax.

He is really proud of his knife!

Great project. Great fit and finish. I see many many projects being completed by you and your son together for many years to come. I hope as my kids get older they will still like coming out to the garage and seeing/helping with what I am doing. I really hope that they will want to make projects of their own too.

Your a great teacher it shows!!!

Congratulations to both of you. Congrats to him for a great project that I am sure will be treasured for years. And congrats to you on passing on your love of woodworking (and in the processing showing him that you do not always have to follow all the directions exactly – love those brass pins).

Thanks for sharing.
