Here is a handle I have for sale. It is a piece of crushed velvet Koa from Mark at Burl Source.
I used some brass spacers to break up the Koa and too give the appearance of there being a ferrule and an end cap.
I like slender handles and I would not hesitate to put this on a 240mm knife but it may be more appropriate for a 210 or even a 190mm nakiri or santoku.

I am asking $120 shipped or $135 If you would like it mounted.

Thanks for looking.

Very cool handle.
I really like the different size spacers and the way the brass goes with the koa.

Very different. Has kind of a retro look. Nice proportions. Good job, Karl.

That is a looker, indeed. Is it pre-drilled?
