W2 & Amboyna burl bowie

John, what kind of finish are you using on the wood ? Tru oil ?
Hi Bruce. This is stabilized but I still do the sane process as natural wood, regardless.

I use teak oil, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Tru oil was something VERY similar just rebranded/repackaged.

So this has about 6 coats of teak oil wet sanded into the finish starting at 220 grit. Finished off with gunstock wax.
There are just sooo many things wrong with that knife. You should just send that to me so I can correct your mistakes! ;)

Awesome Knife! Reminds me I need to start doing hamons
