Hey Lumberjocks
Posting another Ron Hock blade that I finished up recently. My first use of stabilized wood scales. Really impressed: dense, heavy, better hand feel when holding the knife and seems to give the finished knife a luster.
Thanks for checking out the Ron Hock knife. The knife holder today is my a nail driving block used by grandkids. Teaching them to drive nails in to endgrain is a real confidence builder. ne

I thought that was a new idea for a cutting board! Nice knife, though.

I like the block as much as the knife – which I like very much. Coupled with your hammer rack post, I thought you’d only have Damascus steel. :)

Looks like it came out great. I recently build three sets of scales for Japanese knives I gave to my adult kids. Not as easy as it seems.

Great project, thank you for sharing! The scales look great. Walnut?
