Kitchen knife scales (handles)

Bought a bunch of knife kits and ulus from the local Woodcraft store and while making scales for these noticed that my wife’s Henckel knives had cracked scales.

The rivets that came with the knives were replaced with better ones. The wood is bloodwood – looks real nice and has an ironic twist. The ulu has a cherry handle.

The real irony was that in dilling these, got seriously tired of dealing with the bit drift in the drill press which in turn just made use of the Jet 15% sale and bought a JDP-17. Expensive knives!

Did a blog on these a while back, just adding to my projects.

Thanks for looking

Smiles I thought I saw them before.
Wonderful knifes, fine work.
Yes that was a wonderful reason to upgrade, I will look for a reason also.
Best thoughts,

Don’t you just love working cherry wood? Cherry and mahogany are my favorites.

-- Candy is dandy and rum sure is fun, but wood working is the best high for me!

I enjoy whatever wood I am working with.

I have cherry, walnut, red oak, white oak, ash, maple, poplar. blood wood, some holly, a couple small pieces of American chestnut, a couple pieces of mahogany. almost forgot the aromatic cedar – all of it is great.
