    That sucks about the black palm.

    The next one up looks great though.

    That multi piece handle is amazing! Can't wait to see it! I was unsure about using metal spacers, but it looks great!

    The new handle combo looks amazing to me! A little Rader-esque...very nice
    Ok Lefty, I was going to chunk this handle, until I read this. I thought I would give it a try, looks like it may have saved it! Thanks

    Awesome! It looks perfect from here.
    I'm glad it worked out (and my suggestion saved you some materials!)

    It's always fun working with expensive natural materials, I once had a pricey block of ironwood burl that just so happened to have a HUGE void in it that went from about 1/8 of an inch under the surface than ran about an inch down the block. Of course, I didn't discover it until I had profiled the handle.

    Precisely!!! It's bad enough when you screw something up yourself, but even worse when it arrives from the factory "pre-screwed"

    Mike,
