    My 1st Dave made wa-handle

    OK so it's not in the same league as Marko & Stefan (almost primitive compared to their work) but it's mine and it's my 1st so I'm proud of it anyway.

    The handle is red dyed curly maple (scored from Stefan) with a black(ish) some kind of wood ferrule with a thin black spacer between them. The curly maple has such brilliant movement in person and looks so blah in the pics - hey what can you do.

    The stock handle is shown for comparison.

    Really? Does this mean RayRay is giving up her Furi santoku!?!

    Shape looks good. Symmetrical? Kinda oval with flatter sides? Or is it more D shaped?

    That's not pink, it's light red.
    There is a big difference......I think?
    Looks really good to me.

    Oh boy, I'm slacking a bit and already Dave makes his own handles. Dave, as soon as you learn what the different woods are, I'll be doomed

    But it's nice, I like the roundish ones, they can feel great in the hand. And the maple looks like it came out nice also. So, you need more wood for wa-handles?

    No way, I have no intention to start making wa-handles especially those octagon ones. No thank you!
