How to make a knife grip - in progress
This is the continuation of a personal project that I am making for my friends. I only get to work on it between other projects but its getting there!

I am using sheets of copper for spacerfront and back. the latter two are each 3 layers of 1mm copper sheet soldered together with hard and easy silver solder. the centre on only 2 sheets. this should give a nice yet subtle effect on the completed knife.

For the grip I am using stabilised* dryads saddle mushroom and stabilised Alder burr(burl) wood. This will be a through-tang blade

*stabilised in this context means the material was dried, placed in a vacuum chamber filled with resin. All the gaps/air pockets were slowly replaced with the resin over the course of a few weeks then cured in an oven.
