Hello,

these days I'm busy with this Nessmuk knife!

9cm blade from 4mm 52100, silver soldered guard from marine bronze, spacers from aluminium, fiber, copper and mammoth, sambar stag.

Still needs loads of sanding and polishing, actually I'm glueing up the pommel from copper.

Hello,

I think a 20h. Now it's nearly finished, just a final polishing and sanding with 1000 to get rid of reflexes so the colours will be better.

Now then lignium vitea. Airgunant just let me see some which will be returned ASAP. Heavy wood with a wonderful dual colour. As I understand it the problem is that the resin within doesn't allow glueing or at least makes it difficult. Wha t a wonderful wood for knife making. Thoughts. Jok.

Lignum vitae has some oil insede and is not easy to glue.

Anyway, as I use only small spacers with loads of contact surfaces to other spacers and the tang, it would hold up very well.

I prefer materials as stag, sambar, mammoth, micarta, buffalo, as these are not prone to split, or at least not as much as wood.

Regards

Nicolas
