Here are four sets of knife handles I’ve recently made. One blade was a gift to me and one will be used as a gift to another later this week. The other two were for practice. And I sure do need more practice!!!
The blades are prefabricated and sold at the wood craft store. The woods used are:
Knife 1: Bolivian Rosewood.
Knife 2: Figured Maple with Purple Heart.
Knife 3: Figured Maple lightly stained.
Knife 4: Walnut, Maple and Padauk.
I find producing knives addicting. Wish I could find a better source for blades since both the small pictured ones along with one not pictured have minor defects from the manufacture.
If anyone would like to share info about knife making or have recommendations for good blade makers/suppliers please let me know. I wouldn’t mind making a few more for gifts.
Thanks for looking!
