    I think having the black bit in the middle looks cheap as hell

    I like them. They're not as "pure" as Stefan, Mike and the gang, but they have a distinct sporty look. i appreciate that he's confident enough in his work/hold of the market that he isn't afraid to show us what he does. Good on him.

    From what I understand you sand off the 4 original corners creating 8 new ones as a result.

    "Wait, what?, people are spending $200+ to replace the stock handles on my knifes? SOOoooo, I can put my own fancy handle on a "high grade" blade and charge $200-$300 more! Oh yeah! GIGITY GIGITY"

    I like it, It adds another construction tool or technique to doing Wa style handles, also great for using up those narrow offcuts
    Its a fairly common method to split a block to cut a slot and stick it back together, Mario made that handle recently which was almost like a crossover of traditional Wa and hidden tang, very nice.
