    Hey Boys and girls! so after being quiet for a bit, I know have time to resurface and start creating again.
    a few months ago I tried my hand at carving a antler handle, Not really knowing what to do with it because at that point my workshop had to be sold off. I kept staring at it and thinking what would this handle be?
    a few months pass and a few key equipment refurnished my shop and man it got the juices flowing!
    I started drawing different designs, and finally settled on one that looked like a elven knife.

    now starting in a non conventional maner, by creating the handle, I used the carved antler and added to it. one end has a piece of ziricote wood that I carved a elven scroll in to it, and filled the inlay with epoxy mixed with porcelain dust. ( tried bone dust but looked dirty)
    at the butt end is a copper spacer, and African dark wood with tool steel ( still in the process of shaping the tool steel )

    the butt end and bolster will have some engraved elven designs, and the blade also.
    still not sold on the shape of the blade.
    what do you guys think?
    ( work in progress) :)

    I really like this knife. What do the Elvish runes say, or did you make them up?

    Thanks ToddR, the runes say " god what I have gotten myself into with this built" :p
    actually they mean anything, just random Celtic stuff I found on the web.
