Fire place chompers

Here is the handle that I recently completed on a set of fireplace "chomper"  or log tongs.  I completed this handle using overhand grafting, using alternate pairs of colored string which were bound to the top of the handle. The top of the handle are finished off using 6L x 5B turks heads which were expanded from 4L x 3B turks heads.  I left the end uncovered just because my hearth is made of brick and I thought that the iron ball on the end my hold up better than a covering knot.
