This is a knife handle I made for my friends father, I made one for him before on another old knife he had where the old handle wasn’t useable anymore. I made the other one out of padauk and just put a simple round over on it, I decided to try moulding this one to your hand more. I made it out of a piece of walnut I had and put maple dowels through the holes in the knife. It turned out alright, wasn’t sure what it was going to look like first, looked good in my head though lol. He was pleased with it, it’s comfortable to use as well.

How did you cut the slot for the tang. I did one of these once it was a real pain!!

thanks guys, I used my bandsaw for the cut, with the blade I had in the saw it was pretty much the perfect fit!
