I made this knife for the tool swap . I used bubinga and finished with 6 coats of wipe on poly for durability. The third pic shows the wood before the finish was applied.
The blade was made with O1 steel, shaped, hardened/tempered, and sharpened. The ferrule was made from a copper pipe coupling.
The swap really made me work to bring my ‘A’ game – can’t send junk to a fellow Jock! What a great experience.
