Here is another knife for Aaron Gibson! Started life as a 240mm AEB-L Artifex (KS Style, not the Ex tall!). Converted to a Wa style tang, thinned out the blade a little and did a new handle with a Snakewood Ferrule, Copper Spacer and SnakeSkin Sycamore Burl from Burl Source.

Aaron likes to push my limits :) Lefty D handle with Natural end Amboyna Burl was the first, then the MEGA 360mm lefty octagon with the M3 materials for spacer, ferrule and end cap, then this one, snakewood! We are trying to figure out where to do next and he wanted Mammoth Tooth for the ferrule. We will see!
