Really cool. Thank you! I wonder if you sanded some of that off and repeated a few times with something like curly maple if it would make that figure pop.

I have been getting quite good darkening of some of my handles by using the buffing whee that has been used on brass with white compound.I did a sgian dubh with jarah and a dagger with walnut today and they are dramatically darker than the raw wood.
Not the best pic but will get better ones when I post them on the main forum.
