    Handle to busy for dammy??





    I am up in the air about this combo.I had a beautiful piece of walnut burl that I started to shape into a wa,but I fell asleep at the sander and turned it into a pencil

    I think it looks good. At least in the pics it does not overpower the blade.

    I dont think it is too busy at all. I like the sweeping formation of the grain, I think it works well with the dammy.

    I agree with Johnny, I think it complements the blade, extends the form. Overall proportions work nicely.

    I like it.

    I think that the wood grain pattern might look even better with a different damascus pattern though. Something like ladder or herringbone with less of a radial pattern and more of a linear pattern would match the wood grain more closely and really set it off. Alternatively, a very defined burl or a birdseye wood grain might be a better match to that particular knife.
