I bought a piece of 3/8” key stock in a “scrap” bin at an estate sale. Ground the blade for this shop made Bedan tool. The handle is turned from Hard Maple. Brass Flare nut threaded on and rounded for a ferrule. Completed with my personal brand.

The brass nut is the most expensive component of this build. But, total cost was still far less than the commercial version.

Thanks for looking.

Not sure what to do with the lathe tool but your quote is excellent!

Good looking tool.
Nice find on the key stock….I’ll have to hit the swap meet and see what I can find. Thanks for the idea.

Great looking tool!
Thanks for the information on the brass ferule. I bought some tools with carbide tips from Captain Eddie Castelin, and haven’t made handles for them yet so that information comes in handy.
Your signature line really says it all. I really hope I can do justice to His masterpieces.
