    This is the first project that I completed after being injured.

    I put a new handle on this blade using handcut kangaroo leather (for the ito), covering burgandy dyed eel hide inlays.

    I think it is neato...how 'bout you?

    I treated the leather, then stretched it.

    CJ, you need to get some pics of your Paracord work up here!
    Looks great and that's what reminded me of your twist and braid

    You know your table has a hideous red stain, right? You should watch Martha Stewards new show - no need to be mortified when guests come over! :lol:


    Hey nice handle! :D

    Don,

    Actually no....I am very colorblind. I can't see the red stain at all!

    In college I used to wear pink underwear and socks...I thought they were white! Geeesh!

    I'll have to have someone check my pictures before I submit them in the future... :oops:

    I see color, I just don't see it the same way you do.

    The color you describe as red, looks different to me...but we both call it red.
