I just finished these ones yesterday.

The first one has a spalted alder handle with holly and mahogany spacers and an alder shank.

The dark area under the handle is where the outer skin of the bark lifted with the painter's tape I had around the shank. I repaired it the best I could and it doesn't look too bad but is darker than the rest of the shank.

I'm not sure what wood this one is, possibly birch. I like the spalting. The spacers are black walnut and claro walnut burl.

This one ended up with a bobbed tail because the pith was there along with a stress crack from drying.

The grain on top of the handle makes up for it though.

Maple with a mahogany spacer. I decided to keep it simple.

Thanks for looking,
