    Hi

    Just finished this project for a farmer friend. Blade is made in the Ukraine by Mamirzhon. Handle is Cocobolo, brass, red vulcanized fibre and dyed and stabilized box elder. Had 4 coats of oil and I may give it a couple of coats of Renaissance wax.

    Thanks for looking and I hope you like it.

    Cheers

    David

    Looks too good to be used

    Thank you all for your kind words. Please don't let looks deceive you though ! Cocobolo is a tropical hardwood that is commonly used for knives and gun grips as it hard, fine textured and dense. That means it stands up well to repeated handling and water. Vulcanised fibre is very tough and has a high resistance to penetration. In stabilised wood the moisture is forced out of the wood and replaced with chemicals that penetrate the wood grain and fibre making it one solid piece that is highly resistant to cracking, warping and moisture. The oiling and wax will only add to the appearance and practicality. All in all pretty low maintenance and practical for a hunter or shooter.

    Superb work. I like Mamirzhon blades as well.

    Makes my efforts look very average! Nice work, congratulations. I must try harder.
    So much to learn and so little time left
