Hi, I was wondering if any member could give me some advice on turning and carving handles for Ceremonial
Swords and knives. The swords are replicas from King Solomon tiimes and I have been asked if I could make the handles. The problem is I haven’t a clue although the lady will supply pictures and the symbols
to be carved on them.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Bob C.
