    Hi Mark, I don't have any pictures of the wonky woods to show.

    Hi Dave. I have been looking at some of Murray's IP series knives on his website, and am curious about his Corian handles. Have you ever (and/or would you ever) work with this material?

    I haven't worked with Corian but I'd have no objections to trying it out. Jim actually gave me some pieces awhile back for this purpose, some scraps from his home remodeling.

    Thanks Dave, good to know. Will have to give this some thought... I am considering a Sabatier Nogent, but am already pretty sure I will hate the handle (though I could be wrong). How about a nice Dave Martell black Corian rehandle?

    Sounds like fun.

    I find it pretty easy to work with and would not expect major problems.

    Then how does three black Corian Dave Martell rehandles sound? (10" chef's, 6" slicer, 3" paring).

    Seems like it would be a nice smooth, polished surface. Easy to clean. Durable. Waterproof. Lots of pros. Not sure about feel...too plasticky?
