I took a knife making class two years ago, and this is what I made. I bought the blade and made the handle and the sheath.The handle is made of alder wood which is a bit too lightweight plus it scratches easily but I can live with that. It fits perfectly in my hand. I've made one more knife since then with a birch handle, but I don't have the tools to make more right now.

These two are made from birch firewood. I love the twisted one and I hate th'e braided one because it's so annoying to work with and it's wonky. But the twisted one was a lot of fun to make and it was easy to get a smooth surface on that one. It's not oiled or anything, just polished real smooth.

Great job!!  They look like courting spoons.  I've wanted to do this.  Maybe I'll get inspired to try.
