I made a Kershaw style handle for my Cold Steel machete. BLO finish. Bronze bushings and loctite epoxy from box store. Sharpened on a wicked edge system… actually too sharp but it sure is FUN with the little stuff. Cuts like a light sabre :) I basicly was just after a good reprofiling. Just touch up with a stone for a while.

Dont ask why my seam is off… misread the micro adjust on the router grrr…
But I just took less out of the other side. Blade is very slightly bowed anyway… and this is a heavily used tool so im fine with it.
