Recently I picked up No. 3 KLVUK (12/19 DOTD) with the dark Satisal handle and couldnt help but make that beautiful wood shine just like my big Siru! Hope yall like it! I left all the scale intact because its a KLVUK and wanted it to look like it. Spine was completely polished and also the edge up to the scale. The handle came out really nice. It was sanded and rubbed down with BLO. I put many coats on and between each coat I rubbed it in with the palm of my hand until it began to warm from the friction then it would dry out and repeat about fifty more times. I decided to do a little texturing inside the anulo.? (fuller). Ive never done that before so it was kinda scarry at first but I think it came out pretty cool looking. I also textured the flat spot behind the cho but forgot to get a pic of it. Here is a close up of the texturing. I did it with a cutoff wheel on my rotor tool and then sanded it down a bit then polished it some. I wanted it to look like "micro" hammer marks if that makes and sense. Hope you dont mind Keshar. I tried to keep some villager to it. This will no doubt be one of my favorites. Enjoy!
