    new shoes for Konosuke (photos heavy)

    When I saw an opportunity to buy new Konosuke Fujiyama White#2 150mm blade, I couldn't get past it. Wanted to try white#2, see if I like Fujiyama grind and have a blade for rehandling. Photos of competed handles in chronological order.



    Mango and Gidgee:







    Biiiig one. Mango and Walnut:






    Bog Oak and Gidgee spacer:







    Bog Oak and artificial buffalo horn:







    Mango with Banksia spacer:






    the weirdest handle I've ever made: Cocobolo and Banksia:





    … and I have a strange feeling that this isn't the end.

    Well, I shamelessly tried to copy your Takeda handle, but Mike's level of craftsmanship is still unreachable for me

    Nice work. What do you do with all the extra handles?

    Nice work Anton, except I think you put that last one on backward

    Be well,

    I keep stashing them until my wife gets mad

    That's clearly wasn't the only mistake I've made on this handle. Gonna try reusing central cocobolo part for another handle
