Please help me to choose. My favourite is picture 4 & 5 but still can't decide. I hope that this will turn ok. It's gonna be my second handle. This is my first. What do you think guys??

Agree with u on 4 & 5. Like the 1st handle, would have put in a spacer, but I always love those to add some extra contrast to a handle.

Yes 4 & 5 are the best choices. i really like your first handle, Amazing job for your first. what type of wood did you use on your first?

Thanks guys. It is Spalted beech on the ferrule and cap and Thuya in the middle. Unfortunately yesterday i cut first slice for the saya and I have noticed that this block is cracked in many places and that those cracks are very deep and go through hole length of the block:( I have contacted the seller but even if he will send me new piece it won't be that great:(

Hey guys. I am not sure that I can post it but I feel that I have to.

Sorry but too many knifemakers screwed it up foreverybody else so images have been removed....

Here's the guidelines....
3. Do not post finished knives
3a. Do not post finished re-handles
3b. Do not post any finished or complete project of any kind what so ever

Really great Job on the 2 handles. As long as you don't offer you goods for sale you should be able to post pictures of your work.
