Hi woodnetter,

Hope you enjoy.

The second one handle looks like Masur Birch which is my all time favorite even tho I never used it before.

It just has so much natural figure to it.

Now both saws are well Wonderful. If I ever got one I might be tempted to never use it and put it in a case.

Nice, Pedder, Klaus! The Maple complements the handle form so well in the first. And, then [Arlin's Birch?] spices the mass of the metals in the second. Thanks for giving us a peek.

Beautiful, as usual. i agree, that Masur Birch handle (if that's what it is) has great character.

Thanks for all the kudos. Yes the first is tiger maple and the second karelian masur birch. That is a wounderful wood to work with. E. A. Berg used it for his premium chisel handles.

As usual, excellent work! The masur birch handle on the second is an amazing piece of wood, and an even better display of craftsmanship.
