Nice work! You got pretty much dead on there! I've got a 'canon' barrel handle lying about, thanks for the idea!

that really is a beautiful knife. Did you shape the nickel silver or was it an existing handle that you re-used? I am guessing it was cast?

 

outstanding piece.

It was an antique butter knife, I'm sure it was cast. Originally held together with good ol fashion pitch. All I did was polish it up after removing the blade. Thank you for the kind words.
