It seems as though Julius Pettersson’s reputation is spreading worldwide, with Californian customer Jonathan Aballi getting hold of one his knife blades and kindly sending in these pictures:
I wanted to send pictures of my finished knife. The handle is made from giraffe bone, leather and stabilized black ash burl:
I formed it to my hand pretty well, and so far so good. This is a really high-quality blade and will actually become my everyday knife once I finish the sheath. I included a few other pictures which illustrate the process although this is nothing new to those that have made one:
I appreciate you offering this product and it was truly rewarding making the handle; I am also currently working on one for my wife, which I will send in pictures of once I finish.
