After making the LPLO last week I was wanting to use the second blade and see how different a look I could come up with. I chose to use an S guard on the new one and a pistol grip handle. I also used a piece of Wandoo that my friend Bruce had sent me from down under. My first thought about the wood is it was a burl but after mentioning that to Bruce he informed me that the whole tree bore this type of wood. He'd also said it was an extremely rare wood and that it was a type of eucalyptus tree. Again the blade is W-2 and is 8" long. I used modern iron for the fittings. Overall its just under 13"

Good lookin' knife! That Wandoo wood sure is cool too.

Amazing how different the two knives look, despite the same blades. I like both very much. The wandoo wood is really nice.

I guess everyone will have to decide which is their favorite. Tough choice, ... but that ironwood and ivory really reach out and grab me. And the knife style is so unique.

The Annual Arizona Knife Show in Mesa is Sat, November 13th - Sun, November 14th this year. Interested?

Marvin, I'm doing this show that weekend: http://www.rockymountainknifeshow.com/ShowInformation.aspx Looks like the making for a really good show. I know the fellows that are putting it on have really been trying to get it known.

You know me I can't stand to make the samething twice. I just went a little bit further this time. I like them booth. Funny how its been a mix on different forums. Right now I'm just getting started on the leather work. Wanting to do some Scandi style sheaths, found a tutorial on how to do them. Hope that helps.
