    Hey Guys!
    well I am one to try something new when it comes to knife making, and being creative. So a while back I started the demon knife project and got stumped by what to use for a handle....after going to youtube U
    and doing searches on engraving, well naturally you get those other videos that talk about some thing else...I came across this guy that carves walking sticks, and MAN what a artist. Naturally my mind went to hmmmm I wonder if I could do something like that.
    so I grabbed a piece of dowel and started cutting out a snake shape ishhhh
    here is what it looked like at the start ....

    after some sanding and more shaping I traced some reference line in order to try and get it more realistic

    After more sanding and dremeling ....lots of it I got this result...

    Finally I added some color to it...Hope you guys like it....mind you I still want to add something for the eyes...
    comments and criticism always welcome.

    Well, I did help teach the airbrushing course at Mohawk for a few semesters, so I could probably help you out with that...
