Here's something a little different for me, in some spare time I've been carving on this maple fork, here's where we ended up. Finish is just some black shoe polish and CA.
Thanks for looking guys, have a great day!! 6A891D05-9561-4C7D-8FF5-217E16ACA139.jpeg 7C5466D1-CF91-4598-A07C-75B7E5B7BCEB.jpeg 6D3102AE-00D5-478A-BD27-6543C91CD981.jpeg 6DC63234-AE08-4756-B29F-D2A5679922A2.jpeg 18745924-DC5A-4FBF-AABC-950599B8600C.jpeg 8606E5CC-9D77-4EEA-ACC4-F58D03F0ECE9.jpeg 8F97DC96-75C1-4930-8E1D-89CD5CB76870.jpeg

Very nice Shane, love that shape, but to be honest, I am truly surprised the CA finish didn't flake off after using the shoe polish ? ( you had no trouble with that ? )

Also, did you freehand carve the flats on the grip or use a bandsaw, etc ?

Thank you Darrell. I've used the shoe polish lots on knife handles and never had problem putting a top coat over it. Never really thought about it lol. But the CA seemed to take really good!

Yes bud all freehand. I use the same thing as I do with all my metal frames, flap wheel on an angle grinder lol. Hold the grinder in my right hand and the part in the left and let er go!!
Also I cut the profile out with a scroll saw.
