      Latest creation. 7 ply walnut Burl - mahogany - sassafras - kiri - sassafras - mahogany - walnut Burl. Handle is Makore, Curly Maple and Purpleheart. I think this one came out really nicely. 96.4g, 6.49mm

      Fixed the resizing issue. Seems uploading from my iPad causes incredibly small thumbnail sized images.

      i do not understand why you put so much energy into the blade and then take such weak pictures ... this way i can not see the beauty of the wood ,which i think is really nice .

      Bob: what is wrong with the pictures? I’m confused by your post.

      yes the size is to small ..
      i found that ttd is resizing all pictures over some resolution. ... i found 1024 px is ok for ttd and still good for us.

      That's not that big of a deal, but try taking pictures on different background color that contrast with the wood. White should be ok.

      Great job!

      Thank you!

      I recently purchased some hand planes and a multitude of additional grits of sandpaper, and have taken to doing a lot more hand finishing on handles than my first several blades. This handle was almost entirely done by hand other than some initial roundover with a router bit (which since this Makore wasn't very figured was easy and had no tear-out concerns). However all of the shaping to get the thickness right on each side of the handle, the final rounding over of each side, the shaping of the taper at the end of the handle, etc was all done by hand with a hand planer. Once that planing was done, some final sanding was done with 220, 400 and then 600 grit sandpaper using an orbital sander. I'm very pleased with how the fit an finish of the handle comes out when doing it this way.

      I think i'll certainly continue doing handles more by hand, especially on highly figured woods where router tearour is a serious concern. Last week I had a handle, literally moments from being done, and i was trying to get some final trimming done and was using my router ultimate flush spiral trim bit... it does a fabulous job of creating glass smooth finishes on wood, however I was doing it with a highly figured walnut burl, and literally on the last pass, doing just a tiny amount each time, it caught on some of the figuring, and ruined the handle.

      The perils of being a blade maker! I've had the same thng got several times it's leaves you feeling sick to the stomach! I am sure even Ross Leidy has had similar moments.
