How to Make a knife handle

This video has no vocal instructions, but shows a man carving/chopping a knife handle out of wood using only what appears to be an ax. His control over his chopping is amazing and he seems to be well practiced in this craft.

*He started with a piece of wood that had a plastic knife blade already inserted. The wood also had the handle template drawn on it with pencil.

*Next he started chopping around the the template with his ax, shaping the piece as he went.

*Lastly, he evened up any parts that needed it, as well as smoothing out any rough pieces.

This looks like a craft that you would need a lot of practice in, but watching this video to observe this man's technique would be a great building block in learning how to master this skill.
