I saw this project in a recent Popular Woodworking and was inspired, plus I had some cocobolo and brass left from my last project. It took longer that I thought it would to get these done. There are two more still in the works, one of ebony and another of ziricote. Since I had to buy the brass for the blade in a large quantity, I decided to make a bunch, pick my favorite, and give the rest away. I plan to keep the ebony one, but it is a fighter and it is not going as smoothly as these three. Satisfying project with a good weight in the hand.
