    To show off the wood that i’m selling I made a handle for a Brisa skinner. I’ve always wanted a dedicated skinning knife as I do a fair few sheep and deer. I was pleased with the result for a first time.. The best of the yew is still drying but this bit i’ve had lying around for a while still looks good.

    [​IMG] Thanks for the replies, here’s the other side, showing a bit or the white wood.

     

  5. Thank goodness the handle isn’t too heavily contoured. Looks much cleaner like the blade shape.
    Have you got a choice of finishes for the wood?

    I did it with a tung based oil, which has left a very matte finish. I would have liked to have had something with a bit more sheen although perhaps not full gloss.
