    Here's another one just off my bench. This one started life as a little Pink Squeak I got online for $15. I decided to dress it up in scales made from Osage Orange. My local hardwood dealer had some blocks that he said were cut from some reclaimed fence posts. It is some extremely beautiful stuff, with a relatively close grain crossed by some gorgeous three-dimensional rays and flecks. The tree itself is considered almost a nuisance tree back where I grew up in the midwest - we called it the "Horse Apple Tree". It grows gnarled and full of thorns, which makes it hard to deal with (it also punctures tires easily). It is decay resistant, so the wood doesn't rot (including the thorns!). The wood is exceedingly tough and flexible - ideal for tool handles, bows, and fence posts.

    I resawed the block to get thin slabs, hand planed them to thickness, then measured and cut the scales. After drilling, counterboring and prepping them, I reassembled the knife and shaped and contoured the scales. After disassembly, I sanded out to 1200 grit, sealed the grain with Tru-Oil sanding sealer, topped it with three coats of Tru-Oil and a polish with Ren Wax.

    That is Beautiful Ted, but isn't that a Squeak not a Pingo?

    Whoops - indeed it is a Squeak! I think there's something about the alliteration in "Pink Pingo" that catches me up every time. Say it three times fast: PINKPINGO PINKPINGO PINKPINGO!

    I made this handle and have had to repair it 2 or 3 times because one or both scales have seperated from the backspacer. I used 2-ton epoxy. Don't know why the glue didn't hold. USAKnifemaker's said un-mixed epoxy has a shelf life. The glue is about 3 years old I think.So this time I put pins in the rear of the handle. I cut small grooves in the pins and also ground grooves on the inside of the holes for epoxy to fill. I'm hoping this will hold. Anyway, here are pics of the one-piece handle for the D'fly2 with pins.







    I am hoping this handle will stay together.

    My EDC for a while. Stretch with carbon fiber handle, Chaparral 2, Dragonfly 2 with kirinite MOP handle, Manbug with bolster/red bone handle. Super blue/420J1 blades on all three (except Chaparral).
