turning knife grips
Hi there, looked around on this forum and I think there is a lot of experience here available, so maybe some of you can give me some advise about turning wooden knife grips?
A friend of mine started with forging knife blades, and asked me if I could make the grips for these blades. I made some of (European) Ash, but there's not a lot of texture in the wood, I would like to use something with more texture/grain, I thought about walnut, but I'm not really sure this is appropiate for a knife (regarding strength/safety), any suggestions?
