  • Handle

    I recently posted a question about making a carving knife handle.
    I want to thank everyone for their advice.
    I also came to the conclusion that the Flexcut style was most comfortable for me.
    Side note question: is that style called "whale tail style?"
    Anyway, I made this handle out of mahogany and the blade is a
    mini detail by OCC.

    Good. By the end of the day, you know that the handle is everything. Fatigue hurts.

      Nicely done Dog. I often destroy perfectly good knife handles and make my own. The trade off for being able to pick up basketballs with either hand.

        That's what I've always heard it called. Nice looking knife!

          I still get a "YA" feeling when I use one of the knives I've made. & if I don't get that feeling, it can you can bet it's blade and handle, that they are going to get a rework.

          Your is indeed a fine looking detailed knife

                If you start with farrier's crooked hoof trimming knives to be redesigned for wood carving,
                Most times, the factory handles get bashed off. The grip and the movements are all so different.
