Well, here is the first knife handle I’ve ever made. My nephew asked me to make him a handle for his knife & this is what I came up with. This is just a cheap knife but he wanted something made from me. I inlaid some turquoise in the front & the other end is painted white in the groove with pearl powder mixed with the epoxy. The wood I used is called morado & purple heart. I used a very thin layer of the purple heart next to the brass under the morado to add to the overall look. It isn’t visible in the pictures but it’s there. Thanks for looking & have a good day.

Hey, thanks guys. This was fun to do. He liked it a lot, & has been showing it off to his friends. Maybe I’ll get some business from the exposure.

Nice job on the knife. How did you attach it to the metal frame.

Hi Charles, thanks for the comment. I used 5 min epoxy by Devcon. It is still holding up too.
