Cutting knife wood handle
A ugly dugly becomes a woody swan…
I have several Japan knifes, different jaws, different looks; since I got my lathe I decided that slowly I will change all that, and bring some warmth and beauty into the shop.
This is one of those projects.
1. The cutter with new handle, and the wood used behind (merci Napoleon).
2. Spinning the lathe.
3. The original parts, and the ugly plastic ‘cover’.
4. First try… Yes I did not like to hold it; the idea was fine but the result not as I wanted.
5. First try put together.
6. Ready to be used, and a pipe for scale.
(PaBull, now you see I have a matching pair).
Hope it can be to some inspiration, perhaps even some swans,
