Up for sale is a stabilized Australian lacewood handle with blonde ox horn ferrule and spacers surrounded by brass.
I ran out of daylight for the photos so I will post some better ones soon.
One side of the ferrule has a bit of the ox horn growth ring (not sure if that is correct terminology) visible in it. This horn is extremely translucent.
This handle size is the same as the handle I made for my 240mm Massakage Koshi gyuto.
It is also close to the same size as the Afzelia handle I put for sale last month that I sold for a 210mm gyuto.

I'm asking $160 mounted + shipping. ($150 unmounted)

Thanks

Beautiful work. If I wasn't in the midst of restoring my '73 Ventura, I'd be all over this.

Beautiful handle, Karl. What would look like too much if done any differently you pulled off.

This handle is back up for sale.

Sorry everyone, I should have posted some measurements on this handle in the beginning.
I like slim handles and I would not hesitate to put this on a 240mm gyuto but it may be better suited for a 210 for most people.
The handle measures 16.5x21 at the ferrule and 18x24 at the butt with an overall length of 138mmhttp://dl.dropbox.com/u/49193552/IMG_4316.JPGhttp://dl.dropbox.com/u/49193552/IMG_4321.JPGhttp://dl.dropbox.com/u/49193552/IMG_4318.jpg
