Solid wood or a good solid antler. Just make sure to secure it well and use jb weld it works well to put in the handle and secure the blade to the material. Also put a pin in the shank of the blade going into the handle.

Would mahogany work?

It should. Just take your time and be patent on your first few builds its a addictive hobby trust me. And when u sell a few it get to be like a business. but if u like it and have good buyers it's rewarding and cool to know something u built is being used and has a good chance to be passed down and still being used after your dead and gone.

I put a protective coat of Krylon on the blade and today I hope to stain the grips, then tomorrow I will put on the edge and hopefully assemble it.

Looks different. I'd be a little worried about the thin area between the blade and handle. How thick is the steel u are using?

1/16 in, but the thin area will be covered by the grips for that reason.
