    Just finished this little thing.As i was pealing the bark i noticed that the wood had some pretty nice grain, vertical dark lines and small horizontal red marks that looked like bleeding scratches.(my camera is pretty old and isnt picking much detail, ill borrow a better one to get some pics with more detal).It kinda looked like me after i was done retrieving it, the damn thing had some sort of spiked vine wrapped around it,got me all over the forearms.I carved the lower part of the handle into a fang(zombies beware), added two finger grooves above that, and some deep notches for the bands.Hope you like it.<img src="http://i46.servimg.com/u/f46/17/36/31/86/dsc01028.jpg" border="0" alt=""><img src="http://i46.servimg.com/u/f46/17/36/31/86/dsc01029.jpg" border="0" alt=""><img src="http://i46.servimg.com/u/f46/17/36/31/86/dsc01030.jpg" border="0" alt=""><img src="http://i46.servimg.com/u/f46/17/36/31/86/dsc01031.jpg" border="0" alt="">
