Handle finish? ()

John, all production handles are made of Torrified Maple.

The two O1 chisels I modified come from pre-production stock, which was used for testing purposes. These has Bubinga handles. The 1/8" I sanded down and stained in an attempt to match the others. The fishtail is the original Bubinga pre-production handle.

My PM-V11 chisel handles are not standard, instead later turned from Ebony.

Regards from Perth
