Default Knife handle finishing

Threw together a how-to video on handle finishing using LinSpeed Oil from my friends at Jantz.

You're getting a little pudgy bro
One reason I don't make any videos, I'd need a wide angle lens.

Looks really Jason! Did you ever have any luck getting a piece of wood from the border?

After I sand the scales to 600-600 grit, I run it on the buffer with a fine compound. Then I clean it off with acetone and re-buff if I lift any grain. Repeat until it stays smooth. Then I take it in the house, turn on the electric stove and hold the handle over the burner until is it hot. Wipe it down with Johnson's Paste wax (yellow can). Wipe it down, let it cool, repeat total of 3 times and call it done.

For gunstocks, I use the "sanding in" method and get an absolutely great finish.
