Had a little setback while final buffing - blade caught & struck the wall - tip gone!!
Luckily I have 3 blades - busy with heat treat of a new blade.
Here is a pick of the handle in its raw and modular state just to check the fit.
The handle edges still needs to be camfered and finally shaped to taper.
I have incorporated a carbon fiber rod along each side of the tang which strengthens the ferrule/spacers/wood assembly of the handle.
The knife should be finished by next Wednesday.
