    Del I love the handle on the bottom. Very western-ish. Is that the first one you've done like that?

    Really nice, I am loving the parer I just got, but those make me want more. I like the look of the western handles

    I only do westerns on request, this is only the second one, although I have another on the bench.
    They are fun, but only once in awhile.
    You guys have been keeping me so busy, I have had to start shopping for handle material again, in a big way.
    I'm looking at table sized slabs of wood. I still have enough for a couple hundred handles, but the variety is decreasing.
    This is harder than it may seem. I know you guys make a lot of positive comments about the handles I make, but selecting that material is a real challenge.
    My dirty little secret is that I like to shop as much as most girls, so its fun too.

    I know I'm late to the party, but dang, the buckeye burl on that damascus parer's handle is awesome. It reminds me of smoke rising from a fire.
