    Here's a closeup on the one with nice stag.

    A question about that one for those who like stag - I used opposite sides of an antler for this, so the two handles are both cupped (one concave one convex). I like the way it feels in the hand, but does that put people off?
    If you know it was the 1 piece, I think it adds to it .
    It's good looking stag.
    Cheers

      Thanks for the kind words.

      Askew:
      It's a bit of redgum burl from my garden. We had some old burls that the previous owner had as garden ornaments and I've started cutting them up.

      Mitch:
      Cool. Good to get another perspective. I like that too, but I haven't seen a lot treated like that, so I wondered if slipjoint fans don't like it.

      Cheers,
      Tris.

        I made a gentleman's folder for a friend and he took some really nice photos.

        The scales are mallee burl.
