Well i have had this schrade knife for years. I bought it for my dad in 1989 Well when he passed in 94, i got it back. It had one of them green rubber handles. Well the handle wore out, and i didn't want to get rid of it for reasons all ready said.Today i thought i'd make a handle for it. After starting on the handle, David Keller offered me some Aussie burl. Well as i all ready had started on it, i thought i'd use this one as pracice. So what ya think? think this is a good design, or should i change it when i get the good stuff?
