    Wow, beautiful.

    I didn't know Norfolk pine could look so nice.

    +1. I would never have thought to use pine in a handle until now.
    Oh wait, you mean we can customize our signatures?

    That's Stefan's influence right there.

    Stefan's Norfolk pine handle is what interested me in using. All 3 handles follow a Hawaiian wood theme

    Does Norfolk pine grow in Hawaii?

    My understanding is that it's native to Norfolk Island, about 1500km off the East coast of Australia.

    Historical side note: The British Empire sent convicts there in the 1800s to harvest the straight tall trunks for ship masts but they weren't strong enough for this use.

    I assume that it behaves like a softwood?

    If they're not all Hawaiian woods then we're calling them "Pacific" themed.

    That would work.

    I did some cursory research and it seems like Norfolk Pine and Cook Pine may both be on Hawaii (?), with cook Pine being the more common of the two. Apparently they often get called Norfolk Pine by default. Either way it looks neat, can't wait to see in person
