    *Note - In person the color is a red/purple and not pink as it looks in some of these pictures.














    The more I see handles in this color range, the more I like them. Is that Stevens' wood?

    The depth of colour and polish on this one is amazing, almost looks like you could reach into the wood
    The other 2 dyed ones look really good as well, especially the pink.... sorry purple/red one

    that Honesuki is awesome. Dyed maple is perfect. You get the look of a figured purpleheart but not all the other issues that come with purpleheart...Well, and maple is cheaper too.

    Exactly...purpleheart is very unpredictable. And yes, at it's worst, it turns brown. Sometimes you get lucky and it just becomes a very deep, dark purple over the years. But, you don't always get so lucky. Regardless, purpleheart will always change color in some way as it ages even with the best finishes on it.

    OK, back to our regularly scheduled program. Looking forward to seeing more of Dave's work!

    The gloss finish you're getting these days is unbelievable!
