I'm slowly working on a knife and I was thinking of handle options. I want to go with a stacked leather one with some spacer material in. it's going to have a stainless finger guard and pommel. I was wondering if anyone has put in alternating layers of leather and wire mesh? I think it might looks pretty interesting with the varying shapes caused by shaping the handle with the wire mesh in there. Mesh with 1/8" spacing would give enough gap for epoxy to flood around it and add dimension to the shape after being filed. I might try a test just using some chicken wire and some leather to see how it looks. Any body ever do this and do you have pics of it?
