I got a piece of Desert Ironwood for Christmas, and it was to small to do much with, so I decided it mike look good on a knife.

Well, after a bit of research, I found a website that sells kits, and purchased this one.

As you can probably guess, the scales are Desert Ironwood, and I also made a backspine for the knife out of the same Wood.

This was my first kit, and I think I might have caught a bug, because I want to do more of them.

This came out pretty good, although I can see several things I would like to do better on.

If there are any questions let me know. The kit instructions weren’t really that great, so require a bit of ingenuity to get together correctly.

Very nice. The combination of stainless steel and the Ironwood is great. Great work.
