    I had a couple of small pieces of wood left over from the grips I made so I made "matching" grips for a knife.

    Nice combo, though I'm not a huge fan of laminate, I do appreciate quality work when I see it. That's some quality work X2 there !

    I'm a big fan of laminate and that is a fine looking set!

    Very nice grips and knife handles, great workmanship. Looks like you have been bitten by the bug. Good work and thanks for sharing.

    I'm not a fan of laminate either, but you did a good job with them.
