Mahogany handle shaped mostly by hand. Red mahogany stain, blonde shellac, then buffed with 0000 steel wool and wax.
Donor for the metal was a Dewalt reciprocating blade. Shape cut with a Dremel. The edge was hand ground then sharpened with a diamond file and sandpaper. Blade was polished up to 2000 grit. The front half is scalpel sharp, gotta a little bit more to go.
I’m afraid the blade might be too big for chip carving, it has a 2” radius. If that turns out to be the case then I’ll use it for whittling and make another.
