    snap. That was quite a sale. Cheap too. Too bad the handle is gross looking. It must look different in person.

    I really liked the handle as well. Especially when you compare it to his stock handles. $450 for a 240mm Carter was a smokin deal.

    I'll bounce the question back, how could you not like the handle? Personal preferences abound.

    It's all personal preference. Just look at the Itou knives JCK can't keep in stock, as an example.

    But, an ironwood handle with a black G-10 ferrule might have pleased more people.

    I was thinking the same thing, PT. If the handle were the other way around, it would have looked nicer IMO. I don't get what that weird spacer in the middle is, though. It made it too busy for my tastes.

    Fair enough. Why don't I like the handle: The mircata pattern looks really weird to me, almost like really thin rope coiled around the knife. The spacer is too big and just clashes for me.

    Maybe some other people like it, for me it's too busy - and not in a good way like Itou knives.

    For example, I think Itou knives are drop dead fugly. When I first got into knives, I wanted one. Glad I didn't pay the money, cause it would be the first to go, at a steep discount.
