Man, I wish I could afford to use ivory... :(

 

Excellent design and execution, Stu. That curved bolster is fiendishly difficult to do, as I know from personal experience. B)

Wow, fantastic.

What's happening at image 10 where you seem to add glue on the transition between ivory and wood ?

 

Cheers

Using super glue to seal up cracks revealed during grinding. I also apply it to the spacers just as a backup in case the fit isn't perfect. They were pretty darn close tho.

Very nice treatment of this style! I wasn't sure at first what I was looking at when you showed the raw material set up of the hilt, but it came clear as it progressed...very nice!

very fine handle work, I like the curves you have used

could you tell us what wood it is you have used?

 

for a Puukko the form of the blade is quite modern

and I think a more traditional line might have been more elegant

in the sense of one third straight, two thirds going down to the edge

 

best regards!

Materials used are forged 52100 for the blade with desert iron wood and ivory for the handle with a pure nickel guard
