This karambit was made of an old saw blade, I didnt hardened the steel but its gonna be used a lot so… for the handle I choosed mahogany and I decided to use two bolts for the pins and a piece of pine, the pine really stands out in the middle of the mahogany, next time im planing to use only wood

OK, I have to say, that is sharp, and very good looking too.
What kind of wood will you use on your next one?

I normally use pine, but maybe I’ll experiment with olive wood or a few logs from Shrubs of my garden :D

As Tony says, you should join the swap, Helder. An olive handle would look wonderful.
