    Here’s some of the knives I chip carved the handles. The wood is (from left to right) olive, oak, oak, olive, beechwood. Olive is very hard, much harder than oak, but very nice to carve too! Beechwood is a little tricky because it splinters quickly (hope my english is reasonable …). The same with oak. The latter has this long grain, which unfixes itself from the others when cutted.

    Very nice….beautiful!  How dis you keep from cutting yourself with a razor sharp knife working on a piece with a (presumably) sharp blade?

    extremely impressive!

    Thank you for all your very motivating comments!

    @ Michael Disher : Yes, the Opinels are quite sharp from the getgo. And after a very deep cut in the finger pad carving my very first knife-handle, i started to wrap cardboard and some Duck Tape around the blade before chip-carving and after sketching out the pattern.

    A recent finished handle in Walnut. I like the very dark kind of silky sheen of this wood. (On knives handles I just apply a little bit of “Holzbutter”, a special product for wood, food-save.)
