    I think leather is my favorite handle. Can you point to a tutorial on how you got such a nice sheen to it ? Nice looking blade.

    Many thanks!!
    Grouser1741: it´s easy :-D Hand sanding up to 240grit, than put clean alcohol on it and polish with back side of sandpaper (dont use the paper one ;-) ). When it´s nice and clean put it into dissolved beeswax for 45minutes than take it out and let it coll down to the room temperature. After that take a piece of flannel cloath and polish it to the final look. Now the job is done ;-)
    The key is to hand sand it realy carfully!
