Great looking knives. How do you manage to do the groove in the handle? By hand, with some power tool (dremel or similar)? I thought about making a handle for an Opi, but the groove part isn't easy, specially when you don't have any power tools...

Thanks. Yes, it's the most difficult part of the work. I use different tools. For wood or other not too hard block materials a small circular saw on the drill press. It needs to be carefull, It could be dangerous.
For raw matérials I use cutting discs in different thickness mounted on the drill press. In this way you have both hands to hold the handle. I found Dremel is not a good solution but some people use it with success..

My son just bought a Number 9 for me yesterday.  Hot on the heels of the Minimalist Challenge, I decided to pack it today with the SI.  I don't know why, but I'm really smitten with this knife already!  I think it even beats, sharpness wise, a knife an old family fried brought back for me from the Laplanders.  There aren't many I consider scary sharp, but this baby is one of them!  I love the custom mods in this thread!

Thanks Barry !

Here's the AZ desert ironwood #12. Polished and fileworked stainless steel blade :





I cut scales for 111 mm Victorinox from the same block and I made a Forester with damasteel blade. I'll show you the result on the other topic.

What do you do with these pieces of  art? You just collect them? Or do you expose them? And sell them?

Most of them are realized to order for users or collectors.

Just picked up a #6 for both my son and I.  Haven't done any customized work on either it or my #9 but I absolutely love them!
