    I think it looks amazing and as others have said, it's a nice way of doing black-on-black handles, which can looks really boring

    I LOVE IT! But I am a CF freak so my view might be bias

    Dunno, I'm extremely biased towards wood so take this for what it's worth but I'd go for a wooden handle any day, even humble ho would be preferable in my agenda. That said I think your handle is very elegant, maybe nickel spacers instead of white fiber, to aesthetically recall the metal of the blade.

    I'm going to say no on this one. I don't like the carbon fiber look. It looks a bit smudged up in the image as well. Just not very clean looking. Maybe if it was tightened up and the lines were near perfect I'd take a second look.

    I like. Especially for more utilitarian knives. Are you thinking an option with your knives or making them available for aftermarket?

    This was a test piece. I agree that the pattern is blurred, and am looking into a tighter weave. It, for the time being, will be an option for those who want "sterile" or a hard work piece. I don't usually supply handles, but am open to discuss it.

    I too am a wood junky, but customers have asked me for a non showy option for work, that isn't just all G10 or Micarta.

    I think the cool thing is you can do different solid colors or even two tone stuff like black and red or whatever. That could look pretty neat.

    I really like it. The carbon fiber is really pretty and I imagine it's really comfortable to hold, not to mention super durable.
