Bog oak and damascus

Just about to wrap this one up. I may apply truoil to the handle, haven't decided, for now it's just buffed. As the title this knife is Alabama damasucs with an ancient bog oak handle, G10 spaces. Guard is a piece of 1084 I had on the bench. It's thru-tang construction, hidden nut with the bog oak butt cap screwed and epoxied in. As you can see in the photo, there is a part of the grain that is a little different than the surrounding grain. It still takes a good buff but it doesn't look like the adjoining grain.
OAL is 8.5" with a 4" blade 1" wide.

Opaul nice looking! Do you buy the large billets from Alabama Damascus or the drops? I use to buy the drops but it seems recently they are all very small!

Thanks,
I buy the large billets. I had enough damascus left out of the large billet that I've been able to get two additional knives.
