Curley Maple Handle
This piece of curley maple has some very nice figure and depth. It took a full month of daily sanding and applying a tung oil finish to get it nice and smooth.

Choice of sheaths
I had Sandy make two sheaths for this knife so I could keep one for a study piece. You have choice of the sheaths. The top sheath is a right hand cross draw. Pretty cool. I looked good wearing it around the house today. The bottom sheath is more traditional with a keeper strap. If you want both, we can work it out.
