    Finally made use of the Damascus I picked up from FORGE figured the handle should have similar pattern as the steel so a little bit of end grain Zebra wood poorly stabilized after most of the resin drained out. A couple dozen coats of Tru-oil to the rescue and it is looking Okay, soon to be kitchen knife.

    Found that when stabilizing thin end grain and even Elk antler you can get a lot of bleed out of the resin. next time will be a larger block and one end sealed possibly, worked well on the antler i tested out a few weeks ago

    before anyone mentions it, Yes the grain should be going the other direction to match the steel.

    Thought of it after all glued up and ready for sanding
