DSC03830.JPGExperimental London Pattern Handles135 viewsI tried several options while deciding on the final handle design for the Two Cherries handles. This was one design, which combined leather washer on the striking end with ferrules made from two different sizes of flare nut. I decided against the flare nuts because they wouldn't accommodate the chisel tangs very well. Don't recall why I abandoned the leather idea, other than maybe I didn't have enough leather on hand at the time. Not a bad look as I revisit it. Maybe I'll use it for future tools.Chuck Myers07/03/10 at 19:02OldSneelock: Nick, I really like these handles. I don't cur...

The owner did not want a complete refinishing, which is a good thing as the antique value of this piece would have been lost.
