So today I was out in the shop enjoying my new diesel forced air heater and getting some blades ready to send out a batch for ht. On a break from hand sanding, I started going through my bucket of handle material scraps and decided to try something that has been bouncing around in my head for a couple weeks now. In laying a piece of contrasting material into a handle. I should have taken pics along the way for a wip but that will have to wait till next time. The blade is still rough and has not yet been ht'd so just ignore everything except the handle I inlayed a 1/8" thick piece of black g10 into this scale I had left over from a previous project. It's not perfect but I figure I know how to do the next one better now so it was a worthwhile experiment.
