Someone needs to score that quilted maple one - trust me. :)
The pictures came out great, I love the choice of backdrop material.
I know one guy in Bayside just hit the floor mumbling something or other.. nice......
Just a few recent ones. Shop snapshots, need to handpolish them a bit but then they are done. I always want to take better pictures of them but never seem to get the timing right, but you get the idea... These are all orders, so they are NOT available. But if you recognized your ordered handle here, we should talk in the next few days, just too tired tonight.
Bakelite handle with an elforyn (art. ivory) ferrule.
For one customer (Tu): Ebony with divided dyed maple burl ferrule and mammoth tooth end cap; black ash burl with redwood burl ferrule and brass end cap with a mosaic pin.
For one customer (Zach): Replacement handles for Shigefusa knives ;) Premium ebony, nickel silver spacer, horn ferrule.
Redwood burl (provided by customer, Scott) with bakelite ferrule and end cap.
Not sure what happened to the colors here. This is a pair with reversed elements. Handle 1 is Mark's turbo redwood burl with ferrule and end cap of Masur birch burl from Craig Stevens and copper spacers, the other one has the woods reversed and brass spacers. Those were made by and for Aaron when he helped out in the shop, I just added a few touches here and there.
Cross-cut spalted Hawaiian signature, horn ferrule. I hope the customer (Rob) likes it, I used cross-cut instead of ripped signature wood. Cross-cut spalted woods often crack, but this here happened to be a very nice and stable piece, and it just jumped out at me....
