A gift from a Tradganger put to use


Jon Stewart sent me some Cholla cactus wood for knife handles. This piece was mostly finished already so I put a Keokuk point in it. Thanks Jon!

Jon Stewart:
Very nice blade. That's a good fit. I wrap the area where the blade goes into the handle with fake sinew and then put about 7 coats on the handle..  Hides the wooden plug I insert in that area.

Yeah I wrapped it in artificial sinew and sealed the handle with titebond III glue.

Pat B:
More nice work, Jim.   Jon sent me a few pieces of the cholla too. Cool stuff from a cool dude!   :thumbsup:
