The old #6 had a ratty looking handle on it and since I love whittling I thought I’d give this a try.

That’s amazing. I bought a #6 years ago that someone had put a mismatched handle on and tried to do what you did. It’s hard! Beautiful job!

Thanks for the compliment.

I can’t really tell any difference in how it operates but it at least looks better.
