I have done the "Come Your Own Knife Auction" for charities over the past few years. Last of my "2017 Come Forge Your Own Auction Knives". This one was for my wife's foxhunt auction last January. Knife is 12 inches OAL...tippit

That is some beautiful handle material. What is it? Oh, the blade ain't too shabby either!

Kenny,
It is a piece of scrap some bowyer sent me years ago...unfortunately don't even remember who sent it. On top of all you see, it is also curly.

Talk about pretty...I found a 1" square X 12" long piece of Black & White Ebony at Woodcraft Supply while I was picking up some glue. I've got all sorts of wood scraps coming out my ears...but this piece was cheap ($12) and knockout beautiful.

I debated getting it because what the heck do you do with that small a piece of wood...fillet style knife with super thin flexible blade (OAL 9 inches). Actually there is enough left for two more small knives!

Very nice, I like that blade design and the B&W ebony is awesome.
