I have never seen braised pins. That would probably heat the handle material too hot and burn it.
I am working on a tutorial for you. Taking pics of my grandsons as they work. It is much easier to take pics if you aren't trying to do the work & take the pics both at the same time.

If I had a photographer to stand by and take the pictures of each step it would be a better turorial. I get going and forget about the camera.
Glad you enjoyed it!!!

You should see the Amboyna Burl, absolutely amazing.
Yesterday I found a new source for wood locally. I won some Koa on ebay and saw it was local. I made arrangements for local pickup. It turns out that I used to work with the guy about 10 years ago. (It's a small world, but I would hate to paint it) He has some of the finest burl I have seen & a number of woods I have not heard of before.
Here is a pic of the wood I got yesterday:
The large piece on the left is stabilized Buckeye Burl, Koa on top left, Red Mallee in left center & Sepele on the bottom left.
Does anyone need a knife re-handled?
