O.k., I had to do this. If you are a person who cries when they see a baby seal, close this thread and don't look.
























I warned you, this is your last chance to leave!




























Well, you had your chance. Here it is:



















Are you really sure? :)




















O.k.

How about this?

I just couldn't help myself, I had to do it. Some glimmering acrylic in pink and pearly white. Should fit a small gyuto, santoku, nakiri etc. $138 shipped, if you really dare it :D

OMG, is it so wrong that I like it lol. If you could make one with Gundam theme, I would be all over it.

This would be a nice contrast with my Takeda nakiri. I'm not normally a big fan of pink, but I think it looks pretty nice. Is it mostly just shimmer, or does the acrylic have any depth to it?

(it's out of my budget, but curious)

Kitty Chan! Kawaiiiii!!! I'm startin' to worry about you Stefan. :eyebrow:

I'd stick this on the wife's knife, but then she'd kill me with it. Still....it just might be worth it.

I've seen enough hello kitty living in Okinawa for 3 years to last me the rest of my life lol.

Would look cute on a beastly cleaver or scimitar though :lol2:

LOL, that santoku really is a perfect match :D But I thought maybe Salty or Colin might like the handle, you know, real men who are not afraid to show their feminine side :) No worries, I won't make more of those...

My wife has just recently discovered a little weakness for pink decoration items. So I am seriously considering getting her a small gyuto or petty and this handle... Stefan, you made us all smile. But this handle is not only fun, it's cool!

LOL! Thats awesome. Don't know too many people that like both hello kitty and knives, however. Pretty niche market there haha.

We have a little Vietnamese girl at the club who just had her Hyundai painted pink! Saved up for months, lol...

My wife loves Hello Kitty and I showed her this. She said it almost makes her want to cook. Luckily she said "almost." I'm still recovering from the last time she cooked dinner about 5 years ago.

Übung macht den Meister! It will look great on a seriously made knife with Kuroushi or Nashiji finish :)
A big hairy man with a big knife with this cute handle.. Then the camera rolls on the top of the handle.... A scream.. It's a thriller!

Not sure if this will raise any interest, but the money for this handle will be thrown into the pot for Son which I can't seem to link to, sorry.

Too late, guys, the handle is SOLD. Dave, the buyer may approach you about your generous offer once he has a blade for it - Thanks dor doing that! Will send the funds over to Son's collection tonight. Thanks for looking. Can't wait to see this on a blade ;)

I was just playing around, never had any intention to make more of them. But an incredible Hulk handle sounds tempting :)

Hmmm. Reg Barber does custom-printed resin inserts for the ends of the tamper handles. Would be an interesting option to offer for knife handles. Restaurant logos, pic of your dog, etc. Kinda like a tatoo for your knife...

Let's see now, where is that entrepreneur thread?

I was not aware until this moment just how badly I want to fit a Zakuri knife with a Char custom handle.

Honestly though I love the little step away from the norm with this - it keeps things interesting, especially when you can do it with this level of quality.

I've been dropping hints all over the place about a Yoda handle......:doublethumbsup:

here's the funny thing- I actually grab the hello shiggy fairly regularly. For those of you who may know my lineup, you may ask yourselves, "now why would you grab that when you could grab <insert favorite knife here>"

I dunno. something about that HK handle - it's a blast to use, and always gets comments when I'm cooking for others. It's definitely a standout piece.

It's a little bit extreme but I could have seen that on a petty for my sister. Pity she would have destroyed the knife in minutes.
