Purple Heart


Well-Known Member
Here are some photo's of my latest creation. A F.Fenney Sheffield mounted in Purple Heart with a Turquoise with black lines wedge. This wedge material was the same material pictured in the scale project step 1 wedge list. I thought some of you might like to see what it looks like when it is actually used in a project and polished up.

Remember something about exotic colored woods, like these purples and red's. Eventually they will all turn brown. Usually this will happen within 1 year or so and sometimes faster, but it will happen.

What beautiful work as always from you Sir Raymond :thumbup:
Pray tell do my old eyes deceive or is that a straight spacer and not a wedge at the toe end of these wonderful scales?
and is that oh so shiney blade also marked as Tally Ho, similar to the one owned by our own Torben?

You are such an observent character, however, your eyes are deceiving you. The wedge had a slight imperfection in the thin edge during its making and I didn't know it until it was epoxied in and pinned. I decided to use one of my hand engravers to create an illusion along the edge, and in fact, it did work. So thanks for noticing Ralfy.

Yes that is a Tally Ho.
