    The malachite was composite from Jantz. Ironwood (on sale cheap!) from Mark. Mike brought the knife back to life.

    2nd attempt at a wa handle. Not too excited about how it turned out, but it does feel better than the one it came with. I think I am going to stick to western handles for a while, at least until my attempts at wa handles start looking acceptable.

    CCK 1303 with Bloodwood and Marble wood.

    That doesn't look to bad. Maybe just a hair fat, but I'm not a clever guy.

    Thank you for the kind words Crothcipt. I was shooting for a much larger than normal handle for this. I think larger handles work better on cleavers, but that may just be me.
