    01 tool steel, kirinite handle and brass pins, just sold it for £60 so I’m very happy!

    Just for info, the kirinite was great to work with, smells a bit but comes up nice!

    Looks great! Very nicely done and excellent finish work! I heard kirinite is great for low-impact handles like a chefs knife. I make mostly outdoors knives so I haven't tried it yet. Has anyone used it with success on a hard working (lots of impact or extreme temps) knife? Not saying chef's knives don't work hard, but they are more 'delicately used' than a bushcraft or survival knife.

    Haven't used kirinite on a hard use knife yet but I'll attest to it being a joy to work with and very forgiving. It definitely has a unique smell when working with it (Reminds me the smell when walking past the nail salon on my local mall) Love the details on the handle spine too!

    Thank you both! I’m not aquatinted with higher impact knives so I can’t comment I’m afraid.

    Thanks again

    Looks real nice. The file work on the spine is a really nice touch. Keep up the good work :ok:
