    Yes the handle and the piece immediately under it are all one piece with the grain running horizontally through the handle. So that does mean that the shortest grain, the weakest spot, is that section immediately under the handle. But it is 1 1/2 thick! I also made it stronger by drilling a 3/4" hole up through it and into the stick. I sand down a 3/4" oak dowel to a loose fit and use it to join the two pieces. The grain runs vertically in the stick and the dowel and the glue joint should make it stronger. I think using a thicker dowel is actually a little stronger than the threaded rods I have used before,

    I really like that you broke with the traditional razorback. As usual excellent carving.

    Really like him Mike. He'd be great on the end of a Knife handle too.

    started a topic "Hog Wild"

    "Hog Wild"

    Here is a cane I just finished. Maybe it will find a home with a Hog fan or a hog hunter! I did a clay model of the head for another carving and liked it enough to want to use it as a cane. It's kind of a mixture of an Arkansas Razorback with a little feral pig thrown in. I tried to shape the handle similar to a pig's body, including the curly tail on the end. Thanks for looking!
