Picked up a folding knife kit from Woodcraft. I made the handle out of ebony. The directions that came with the kit confused me a bit. I think some pictures would have helped me!! Anyways, it took me a while and I did this right before I got my Ridgid spindle/edge belt sander which would have helped a lot. I ended up scratching the metal a little but I figure it is a knife and will get scratched eventually. Finish is a few coats of tung oil. Thanks for looking!

Very nice. Looks like a comfortable handle.

Thanks, Michael. The handle is comfortable. It is a bit thicker than I would have liked but I already put a lot more time in that thing than I wanted to so I left it as is.
