    I like the shape a lot Dan, and olive is so nice to touch and hold! The double pin at the very front of the handle throws off my eye slightly I think but that is just personal and very minor. I would work with that bad boy all day long!

    Ya the front small pins were originally for a bolster. I omitted the bolster and it left more space than I wanted in front, so I added the two small pins.

    Warning. This olive wood is extremely hard! I burned it quite a bit on the grinder. I had to hand sand the burnt marks out.

    The wood must be like G10, use a worn belt and you are going to smoke it.

    I did a similar holes than changed plans and went with hidden pins to hide the shame :roflmao surprised it came out half decent in the end. Of course I will now spend some time wondering if they will hold
