Thanks for the pictures.I can see why a pollywog handle is faster to make. It also looks like there will be some difference in the hang of the saw depending on if you use a classic handle or a pollywog.Both handles are beautiful for sure, but the pollywog has got the advantage of a cool name :-)BrgdsJonas
Hi Joans, yes there is a diffenrent hang angle. The hang is lower on the pollywog. That allows a heavier spine. CheersPedder
OMG! It is freaking gorgeous! I can see the ripple in the ebony. At least I know it is there. Perhaps the other handle blanks from that board will be a bit more figured, but, I really like it.
H Brian, it was a bit more seeable before the carbnauba wax. Your pice was the one with the most figure, Klaus said. It will be a special saw anyway.CheersPedder
