I made this for our upcoming charity auction. I’ve been working with Wooley Mammoth Ivory scrap and trying to find different projects that would go well at the auction. This one uses a long piece that ad a lot of color mated with a piece of Honduran Rosewood Burl that I’ve been looing at on my shelf for over 2 years. I really think it came out well. I did use a little Wenge’ in the gap I cut for the blade. The finish is just natural, I buffed it.
