The following post was kindly provided by Woodlore customer Frazer Downie:
I just wanted to show you my finished Julius Pettersson knife and I’m very happy with the results. I used antler for the main part of the handle and wood for the spacers:
The knife took me about two days to finish and I enjoyed every second of it. The longest part of making this knife was the filing and sanding to make the handle fit my hand. Even though it took numerous hours, it was well worth it in the end.
Thanks for the very good service at Woodlore and I’m sure this knife will serve me well in the future!
All the best,
Good strong look. I love the look of Antler and the patern it gives. You just have to be careful not to hit the marrow. You did a good job by the looks of it 🙂
This is a very beautiful handle for the blade, Frazer. I know the feeling when you have to do a tedious work, but you enjoy it nevertheless because you cant stop thinking of the finished product!
Very very nice my friend, I love that the face a the blade is rough. I think that looks fantastic!
