Step 5: Defining the Handle: Part 2

The glue should be dry enough after a 1/2 hour to be able to form the scales. Using a pattern, trace the shape of the handle to the scales. Using a rasp or sanding disc shape the scales to the pattern.

Split the scales in half using a sharp knife. Clean the insides of the scales.

<p>Nice knife, I made these a while back and they have been put up in a box. When I saw yours it reminded me of the knives I made. They fit my hand very well and cut great. I mainly use them for rough cut and I made a few other knives for finishing and detailing. You did a great job, it looks nice. Thank you for showing us!</p><p>Joey</p>
<p>I made this today. It didn't go so well. Mostly due to my lack of skill.<br>Gonna try again tomorrow. Lessons learned and all that.</p>
<p>Sweetness!</p>
<p>This looks great, I love the handle design!</p>
<p>A local woodworking group created the design. It is easy to duplicate and comfortable in the hand.</p>
I like it!! Voted
<p>Thanks</p>
