Making my denim blue jean "MikeCarta"

This piece is for a special project. A good friend died of cancer earlier this year. Her nephew had previously bought one of knives with a blue jean handle. After my friend died, her sister asked if I could make several knives with handles made from her sisters blue jeans to be given to family members as keepsakes. Here is a video of making the piece.

I think you guys had a “how to” posted online somewhere that got me to try and make my own “Jeancarta”.

Great way to remember you friend by the way, I’m sure these knives will be treasured as both a great tool and tribute.
