Check out this handle just installed. The spalting and depth on this one is incredible and I have to say that Stefan did a fantastic job finishing it too.
That is some amazing wood!

Very nice, I had to resist that beautiful wood myself.
Glad it went on the right knife, the handle is a bit stubby and a deba is perfect for it. Thanks Dave and - aaeehh, who bought it?
Stefan, I bought an inexpensive deba to see if I liked that style knife on fish. (I had never used anything on fish that didn't say "Dexter Russell" on it.) Several fish later I was liking the knife and your handle sale came along. Who am I to argue with destiny?
Older and wider.
Very Nice what kinda wood is it?
Just some nice spalted maple.
Here's a really nice pair of (some awesome) koa & buffalo Stefan handles. These handles look about 10x better in real life and they don't look too shabby in the pictures either. You did good here Stefan.
