I think this handle is one of those things that you need to hold it and look at it for a while and study it. The second picture puts a more positive light on it.
Wow, what a difference, I really like it. Have you got a knife in mind?
Doesn't work for me.
It would probably work for me if the ferrule was rosewood.
Great work! :thumbsup:
I like it... a lot, much better pic.
My personal nit might be a different color spacer- perhaps black, or not one at all.
Camel bone is great stuff.
It's becoming a popular alternative to the ever increasing price and diminishing supply of India sambar stag (embargo).
It can be dyed to about whatever color you can want.
Perhaps for some, the materials used here don't have an "Asian" feel about them?
That said, maybe your combo would also work real nice on a BB'Q type knife (criollo/gaucho) or utensil, as well as, that rustic nakiri...
I like it:thumbsup: I have always liked the creative stuff over the classical,I guess it's the pimp in me:wink:
I still don't like the color scheme. If I was gonna do the horn, I'd maybe make it horn-bone-horn or something. As it is, it looks a little Frankenstein-ish.
