Nice work. Make sure you use a good UV inhibitor finish, as the Box elder will tend to lose the red for brown if exposed to sunlight over time.

Box Elder is awesome . How about a focused close-up of just the handle now that we’ve seen the blade design. I’m scheduled for Cataract surgery on the 22nd and these small pictures are difficult for me to see the details in the wood. Thank you : )
