My neighbor asked me to carve this little handle for his pig tail steak flipper. It’s made using some scrap mesquite wood, which is a common wood that grows in Texas. I used the original handle as a template but added a few touches, like the handcrafted thumb hold and the carved relief at the end. All in all a very enjoyable little carving project!

  1. Hey man, nice work! This new format (with the captions instead of voice over) is very good and helps to understand what you're doing.
    I thought that you'd carve a handle in the shape of a pig tail, here in Brazil we don't have this tool for flipping steaks. :p

  2. It's always a pleasure to watch you work bud. The piece should last a lifetime.
