If you’re willing to share your technique….. Is the ribbon cut in the handle shape, or is it steam bent?
Looks great.

Becikeja, the handle is made up by gluing different wood about 7/8” thick. Then resaw the sides (about 1’8”) thick, then resaw the handle up to a point to match the sides in thickness. Leaving a thick part in the middle, then take that to the band saw to cut out the handle. Then a lot of file and sanding to finish it off.

Ken90712, I got the idea for the Handle from another lumber jocks posting. I could be Woodsmith shop.
