Great tutorial.  Thank you.  Residing in the Northern Wisconsin/Upper Michigan area we have a lot of birch - I'm definitely going to make one of these.  What did you use to treat/seal the bark handle?

Excellent tutorial.  You didn't skip steps that are "no brainers" to knifemakers and that is great for the novice.  Good job.

excellent job!!! i was actually looking at a couple of different options for my handle.  i think i might go with this one. do you use any glue/epoxy between layers?  also what did you use to treat the handle at the end?

I'm just getting in to knife making and found this most interesting. I have never seen a birch bark handle before. Brian
