    I purchased a blank at a local gun show and some handle material. I have been working on this and now have the question. What is the use of the paperlike spacer material or liner that goes between the wood and the metal?
    Im still working on my forging thanks to Bear. Its coming along.

    In some respects its a buffer between the wood and steel... in others its decorative... I lean more towards decorative myself... it adds some nice contrast to the handle... Hope that helps...![winkthumb]
