OK so it's not in the same league as Marko & Stefan (almost primitive compared to their work) but it's mine and it's my 1st so I'm proud of it anyway. :)

The handle is red dyed curly maple (scored from Stefan) with a black(ish) some kind of wood ferrule with a thin black spacer between them. The curly maple has such brilliant movement in person and looks so blah in the pics - hey what can you do.

The stock handle is shown for comparison.

Shape looks good. Symmetrical? Kinda oval with flatter sides? Or is it more D shaped?

That's not pink, it's light red.
There is a big difference......I think?
Looks really good to me.

Oh boy, I'm slacking a bit and already Dave makes his own handles. Dave, as soon as you learn what the different woods are, I'll be doomed :tease:

But it's nice, I like the roundish ones, they can feel great in the hand. And the maple looks like it came out nice also. So, you need more wood for wa-handles? :evilgrin:

No way, I have no intention to start making wa-handles especially those octagon ones. No thank you! :)
