    looks great but just a friendly reminder before you get to your bevels (post #80 in 2013 Kith indicates max length of 7'' 178mm) :doh:

    I would have no problem having a Scandi that big. I like it. It's like a Scandi camp knife.

    ya i got some cocobola scraps from an old furniture maker and some pieces have almost a burl like quality-trouble is i always hoard them for the "perfect knife"-but am happy to say this was one of them-on to the sheath

    I know what you mean. I am new to knifemaking and I can already see myself doing that.

    Thats some nice figure in that cocobolo. I think every maker has a stash of wood they want to save for personal projects or special "perfect" knives. I really like the look of that corian in contrast to the cocobolo. My parents run a hardware store so i have been trying to talk the counter top supplier into shipping me out their end cuts and scraps of it to try as handle materials.

    That looks really good. I like the corian. Hmmm. We're putting in new countertops this summer. Might have to have a word with the folks at the kitchen place about their scraps.

    i swear corian is harder for me to get from those cabinet makers than it is to pry brass from a knifemakers hand
