This week I'm finishing up some blades to offer to subscribers to my mailing list. First up is this Georgian style Bubinga handled Dirk. 1075 blade copper mounts, hand carved bubinga handle. By-knife housed in the scabbard.

Looks great Jake. How is that Bubinga to carve?

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.

I just can't get over your carving abilities.  Well done.

I really don't like it for this kind of work. It's hard and tough and fibrous, and doesn't take detail well...but I really like the weight and look and feel of it. It's probably fine for more abstract/sculptural carving.
