    The ones I like best are the Mango/Gidgee and the Bog Oak/Gidgee.
    I really like the style with the contrasting ferrule and end cap.
    You have a good eye for what works well together.
    The last one is kind of weird, but that can be a good thing.

    Thanks Mark,

    I'm starting to get some confidence in my handles. Still need to work out how to make a clean and nice looking mount, but that's might be something that came with practice.

    That bog oak gidgee is by far the nicest combo I have seen yet.

    Thanks guys. Initially I was going to choose the best handle, mount it and sell the knife, but I'm slacking. It's still sitting in my workshop waiting for something to happen. The good news is that I can use it as a template if someone needs a handle for their 150mm Kono

    Hey folks,
    After I expressed my appreciation for his work, Anton was kind enough to send me a couple of those handles for just the shipping cost. I'm going to keep the bog oak and gidgee, which is a very nice handle.
    I also have the first one, with mango and gidgee. Is anyone interested? Shoot me a PM. Anton did not want to sell these handles since they are practice pieces. If you look at them carefully, they're not perfect, but they are so much better than what I would make if I tried on my own. I think they're nice handles, and I'm very grateful for the generosity.
    I will mention that the mango and gidgee is pretty small. I don't have exact measurements, but can get them after I go home. It would work best for someone who has smaller hands, and/or prefers smaller handles.
