Chestnut is the main part of the head with bloodwood as it’s
side pieces and wenge as the bottom of the head. The ash handle, Mahogany is the accent pieces on the ash handle. The leather is an old pair of boot laces.

Finish is Brush oil.

Looks great Don. Too nice to use . . . might damage the finish. ;)
Well done. Any idea on the final weight?
