lookin at them like this its hard to see how nice they will turn out...
ancient NZ Kauri #2 whitebait looks like it would have a great speckled look
blask ash burl also looks like it would be nice.
do you happen to have any pictures with handles of either black ash or kauri?
i see one of your latest rehandles used the kauri that looks nice.

I don't think that I've used black ash burl yet.

Black ash burl-

Which of these fit a western sujihiki? I like the black ash #3 and NZ kauri #4 so far.

All except for the ones marked for gyutos only.

Thanks Dave. I'll pm you my order of preference for handles.

Hey Master Yodave (yoda + dave) can I have that unlabeled 3d piece?

Sorry if I'm asking a redundant question... would any of these wood choices be an extra cost option for a pre-order knife or does the price cover this handle material?

This looks pretty amazing. However, the darkness of the wood looks totally different than the blocks that Dave posted. I'm totally ignorant when it comes to woodworking. Is this simply differences in lighting, variations in the darkness between wood samples, has this handle been oiled/stained in some way? Sorry for the n00bie questions.

I have a PM in to Stefan for him to identify the unmarked wood block. After this the picking can commence.
