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.

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:(

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.
