Made it from Purple heart and Hard Maple, finish is Enduro (water based), very good product, very protective and scratch resistan (at some level), however I like it a lot, that I haven’t use it at all, I just polish it with Renaissance Wax. I have it just for display. I have an other one of just Maple that I do use.

Beautiful work Jorge! The strip down the handle gives it a nice touch. Thanks for posting.

looks too good to use! That said, I’d be happy to have it hanging on my wall.
