my recommendation is to smooth all the edges, round them over and you will feel the difference. They are usually ebony handles also
1. A handle from Dave, for any knife, won't be uncomfortable. He wouldn't ship it out feeling crappy.
2. I don't like the Nogent handles either.
Just a reminder, something worth noting for my rehandle and Martell knife customers....
I love when a customer wants to shop for their own woods because this makes the results so much more individual and uniquely theirs, I have to still insist on some standards to be followed though. I listed these items at the beginning of this thread, here is a link to that post. Please read this and if you have any questions please ask before you purchase wood and send it here for use.
Recently I've had a lot of too thin scales, wood from unknown sources, and wood of questionable quality coming in. I have to refuse a lot of this wood and I hate doing this because it causes the customer a lot of grief. Again, please check with me or make sure it qualifies for my standards before purchasing.
