Haven’t done much in the way of woodworking for over 2 months now, but did manage to carve out some handles for some knives that will go out as gifts next month.
The 3 knives have handles of cocobolo (what a beautiful wood). The intent was to make them as close to a matching set as possible. The single knife has a handle of bubinga (this knife has a twin sister as well, but it wasn’t yet complete at the time of the photo). In retrospect, I should’ve chosen a different wood, maybe stayed with cocobolo. Bubinga looks nice enough but just doesn’t feel as “solid”.
Thanks for looking!
