    How many heads would explode if the forge did a bog oak and Osage combo handle? Bog oak bolstered Osage? Osage bolstered bog oak?

    Auction knife? :thumbup:

    Some pics of fiddlebacks on my osage bench top board (project was inspired from the five board bench thread and this osage thread.) I still need to put legs on it and finish the finish.

    Cant tell you how much I'm loving that Esquire shot!
    (I won't talk about the Damascus though, or the Osage, out of pure jealousy)

    I unwisely let my Osage Orange Fiddleback Forge Bushcrafter (with natural liner and pins, orange pinstripe, 1st and 3rd photos) go awhile back because I thought I had too many (?) similar sized blades, but I'll share these photos of my Osage Orange JK ViKtim and Kephart:
