A gentsknife with turkish walnut and london gunstock polish

Recommended Posts

Hello,

today I applied the last layer of oil on this handle (CCL gunstock oil).

Blade is 95mm from 1.3505, soldered guard from bronze, spacers from aluminium, fiber, bronze and buffalo, handle from turkish walnut burl with handrubbed oil finish (a 20 layers).

112gr.

@Socks, planning on some holydays in Spain? :D

@Katchum, I made a few months ago a handle from another boring wood... the oil helps to underline the grain, but can't convert a boring wood into exibition grade. This walnut burl ist STUNNING, from a guy from turkey who normally sells gunstock to the big names (Purdey, Longthorne, ..).

Just living in Spain :D

a tiny workshop of my father in law (very tiny, dirty, but at least a place where I don't have to care to produce more dirt ;))

The fine tuning, handle polishing etc. I do at home.

I don't even have a belt grinder, from time to time, I visit a fellow knifemaker to make my blades on his grinder, he also does the heat treatment of my blades.
