This will be a shooter, nice job. I have not looked up that wood, is it like mahogany? Is the carve from a thick board? Take care with heavy bands. Sometimes, straight grain, in the fork well, right by the grip can let go, God forbid!
One of my first SS was from a beautiful maple board, rugged I thought, the right fork just flew off; thank God on the shot and not the draw. If you ever questioned it you could find a band saw, saw it right down the middle, front / back
epoxy in a 1/8" aluminum core, a quality plywood core and have nearly the same SS with added strength. -CD

I'm unable to understand your heavy English. English is not my first language. Wood: Lebbeck (Solid, no layer)
No problem, just make sure it is strong, it is a very nice SS! -CD
