    Here is another Muk I just finished and was surprised (as I usually am) by the way this particular handles set turned out a lot different than I expected. I used black pins to not detract from the wood and they almost disappear. I always love ironwood.

    Any comments or suggestions are welcome.

    Thanks for looking!

    That is so sweet Jared. Love the way the liners work with the wood. Nice work as always.

    Nessmuks are my least favorite styles if knives, But I have to hand it to you. I really like what you have done with this one! especially the handle treatment.

    I keep coming back to this one!
    Jared, do you etch/grind, or grind/mask/etch? I like the clean bevels with the aged flats.
