    Amboyna and Thai Rosewood

    Large handle made from amboyna and Thai rosewood with white marbled bakelite spacers. This is the first time I've used Thai rosewood, I'm not sure if I like it. It's beautiful wood, but can be difficult to machine and sand. The 'Honu' inlay is crushed pearl.

    Height:
    @ end cap- 24.5mm
    @ front spacer- 23mm
    @ front of ferrule- 21mm

    Width:
    @ end cap- 23mm
    @ front spacer- 21mm
    @ front of ferrule- 19mm

    Length- 149mm

    Amboyna and Buckeye

    I sized this one for a small to mid-sized petty (150mm range), but it has enough length to work on a 165mm santoku or nakiri if you like a trim handle. Body is amboyna with stabilized gray Calif buckeye ferrule and end cap. 'Honu' inlay is crushed snowflake obsidian.


    Height:
    @ end cap- 19.5mm
    @ front of ferrule- 18mm

    Width:
    @ end cap- 18.5mm
    @ front of ferrule- 16.5mm

    Length- 138mm
