Bloodwood and ebony on 5/32” O1 tool steel dagger, one of my firsts, about a decade ago… Those double grinds straight(mostly!) and even were a real PITA… I omly ever made one other double edged dagger, and out of MUCH thinner stock to make grinding easier… ANd it was still a Pain. Only the two ever got made, and I will Never do it again!
WIth my new Barkie(6.25” overall) for scale;
Showing what is hopefully possible with the grain in a piece of wood I just gave someone(from the same batch as this handle was cut from)
