I like the experience of “knives dressing”. Here are three of my recent work.
1. Olive and ironwood.
2. Ironwood and mammoth ivory.
3. Red ebony and mammoth ivory.

Lovely! How does the octagonal design feel in the hand?

That looks REALLY GOOD! I have just ordered a set of kitchen knives to make for my wife, now I will probably feel too inadequate to post my knives, LOL. That looks awesome.

Thanks you very much for the feedback.
With these knives I solved ‘The Gift Problem’ this New Year.
I buy ready-made blades. The handle making was quite easy and enjoyable affair. Decorative rings are also easy to make.
The first knife handle is not regular octagon, but rather resembles a coffin. It was VERY convenient for kitchen work, when you do not need a lot of effort.

Care to share your sources for blades and ivory?

I have no one source for blades but lately I like in the knifemaking.com
Mammoth ivory is not a problem in Russia – in north-east you can find it at 20-100 USD/lb.

Thanks for the knife lead. I’ll have to check them out.
Being in Canada, mammoth ivory is a bit scarcer than in mother Russia. I’d like to get a few pieces some time for some scottish blades; a dirk and a skean dhu (the little knife we highlanders carry in our sock).

I can send you mammoth bark ivory (if it not be on the customs ban list in Russia).

Have your say...
