    Very nice! A no rivet design shows off the handle material. Do you do your own wood stabilizing? If so, curious what method.

    Thank you sir. Yes, I do my own stabilizing and sometimes purchase quality stabilized material. I use supplies and materials from TurnTex. Curtis (owner at TurnTex) is a great help to everyone.

    Nice to see others agree, Cactus juice from Curtis works well for stabilizing. Yes I agree he helps out knife makers a lot, has a lot of tips, has integrity. You put his products to good use. I think handling raw material yourself gives a unique product .
