Thanks! The M3 material is pricey, but AWESOME to use! It's about as heavy as stabilized wood and works just about as easily and polishes up really well. I have some more I will be using!

The handle measures in at right around 7" long, the blade is around 14" long.

Yeah, I used that big block I just got on Aarons and the Kikuichi Damascus knife. Nice stuff!

Got some pics this morning. Handle is all finished, but needs the final installation, prob tomorrow.

This morning before the final handle cleanup:

Got the remaining scatches out, sanded up to 1500 grit, 0000 Steel Wool and then used a liquid abrasive plastic polish on the handle. Polished it up so there are pretty much no scratches visible!! Rubbed in a couple of coats of Tung Oil, which made the grain of the wood and the M3 pop a little more.
