So I've been busy with work and have only worked 15 minutes here and there but finally had time to finish the handle for the Konosuke Fuji Honesuki I bought.
Here are the warnings again. I'm not a wood worker, nor do I claim or want to be. I just need hobbies. I'm almost done with it but had to take photos and post with my hobby buddies here online.

Thanks for looking. I would post more but I need to find another blade on CKTG to put a handle on!

Forgot about the info...
It's desert ironwood with white and blue fiber spacers. Tang oil (only 2 coats so far), sanding up to 600, and a lot of adult sodas!

I will comment on the Konosuke when the epoxy dries and I get to run it through it's paces!

Very nice. Nice minimal look, but the spacer work makes it pop.

You might not want to be a professional, but you found a hobby you are good at. ;) nice job.

I have three to do. My busy season just opened up so it may be awhile. Let us know how you like the honesuki.

Thanks guys. I made a mistake and I actually used linseed oil. I'm waiting for usaknives to be back in stock with their metal spacer materials so I can do something really cool like I see on here all the time.
