I bought these skiving knives which had cheap wood handles. I am very particular to Purpleheart so I decided to change out the handles. I cut the blocks needed and shaped them by hand using the belt sander and table saw. I sanded them up to 800 grit and applied 3 coats of Tru-Oil with #0000 wool sanding in between. The final finish was applying some Carnauba Wax and polishing rub with #0000 wool.
