This Knife was ordered from Jantz supply as a kit. The wood is Bocote bought as a 1/2” x 3” x 24” piece from Woodcraft. I sliced 1/8” of with a Zona handsaw, and used 1/8” piece for the pocket knife and used the 3/8” inch piece left over for a set of kitchen knives for the same customer. I finished the wood with three coats of Waterlox finish. I love how the grain in the wood looks in the handle, it was my first pocket knife and I was very sad to give it to the customer. It looked amazing. Thanks for looking!

Very nice. Looks like a knife from the 50s. Do you have a link to the kit you used?

Thanks cool site. I really like the El Verde VG10 Damascus Lockback Folder on the page. Something to consider in the future.
