303 stainless, ground, drilled and tapped to take replacement tips I get from woodcraft. They have two rear handles, the increasing slope at the top I use when holding the handle in place under my arm, the ball at the tip is a reverse hand hold when roughing.

Very nice, i really like the wood and the color combinations on the third one. Makes it easy to know which one to grab

So what came first the Chicken or the Egg, Nice handles, the use of SS makes sense. Just curious do you have a carbide tool to make these?

I made some not so fancy carbide tools so I could make these. I have now built a duplicator for the large model as it is my favorite style. I wait for the customer to tell me what tip they want before I epoxy in the 303 bar.
