Default Trying my hand at knife handles

I have a fair little pile of rare exotic wood now and decided to try my hand at knife handles.

Those knives make a cooks' mouth water.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Looks nice, David! What wood is that?

I have a friend who makes knives and knife makers call the handles 'scales' - I don't know why.

Scales on knives are the TWO seperate pieces that are fitted to each side of the handle. A full solid wood handle is just a handle.
if the metal tang protrudes from the far end its called a "through tang handle", if the metal does not protrude, its a "hidden tang handle"

can we see the ends of the tangs? usually the end cap sticks out quite a bit and I'm interested to see how youve made them flush.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.
