Latest one off my bench. 4 1/2” O1 utility with a bronze guard. Handle is dyed & stabilized Hempwood. I don’t do a lot of mirror finishes, but decided to buff this one out.  Thanks for looking.

Hempwood?  Never heard of it, but I like it.

It’s a company out of TN or KY ( I forget). It is compressed industrial hemp fibers. I’m playing with my first board of it. It really needs stabilized before use as a handle, but I’m liking it.

That is interesting, would you mind showing the board you start with?

It’s 4/4 thickness by 5.25” wide. It’s actually a little lighter color than the picture makes it look like.
