Rhomboid Hunting Puukko with Sculpted Handle

Recommended Posts

I just finished this little knife up. The handle was inspired by Andre Andersson's work, which I've long admired. 
This was my first go at a handle like this, and I really want to do a mosaic damascus carving knife with this type of handle on it. I think it would look really good. The blade on this knife is a bit simple for the handle I think... but it works.

Clean work!  I'm not a fan of dyed wood (personal opinion, not a value judgement!), but it works on this one.  Sometimes a fancy handle needs a simple blade to keep the package from being overwhelming.

Gorgeous work! I see your stuff on IG all the time, and always appreciate how clean and well done it is.

I do like that and I have to say I agree with Alan in concept. Lin Rhea once told me "A knife has to look good naked".

I think it would largely depend on what Damascus pattern you chose to use. A simple pattern might not clash too much but a complex multi-bar/mosaic with such a heavily figured wood might be over the top a little. Who knows? maybe it would look right though......only one way to find out for sure I guess. :D

I say go for it!
