A knife I built for my sister (what can I say? I have a cool sister!). Hidden tang pattern forge-welded hunter/skinner. The handle is a single piece of stabilized maple burl, cut and shaped, 4 and 3/4” long, 7/8” in diameter at the widest point (she has small hands.). Thanks for looking.

NICE job of that damascus! The handle is a perfect mate for it.

Apologies. I did not mean to misrepresent. The blade is from a fella in NC. I just did the brass and handle. My steel work isn’t near that level.

You and that “fella in NC” made a great knife!

Nice job. Now I have to look up what “stabilized” really means :)

Ahhh :
Stabilized Maple Burl. Why Stabilize? Stabilized woods have been impregnated with monomers and acrylics to produce a dimensionally stable wood.

That’s a real nice knife and I bet that your sister loved it.
