I'm a knife maker. I've been making knives since 2016 and lately I've been getting into making slip joint folding knives. I have made one lock back knife but I really like making slip joint folders. I'm interested in some vintage rag mikarta for knife handles

Welcome West Tennessee. Vintage rag mikarta is very unique. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

Thanks so much for all of the kind words. My favorite wood that I've used for knife handles is Mesquite burl. To my eyes it doesn't get any prettier. I've also used other wood like ebony and walnut. I'll post some photos soon

Welcome!! I follow some youtubers that make knives. I figured once I got better at woodworking I’d try it out. Happy holidays!
