    I love that handle, this may be a great alternative to my need for blue mammoth. Got any more of those Stefan?

    Thanks guys! Hi Cody, welcome and thanks - glad you like it! And yes, I have a bit of that blue bakelite left. Since there is not much and my source just sold his last piece, I was thinking about using it more for accents than for full handles, but I could make one or two more. Actually, one other ordered one is on the table right now.

    Here are Jan's left handed honyaki (one that's mirror polished) yanagibas with their new custom Stefan handles installed. Talk about high end packages, lots of $$ in these (low end) pictures. It's a shame that my pictures don't do these knives justice, they're really incredible looking in person.

    Maybe Jan will come along and help us with the makers and Stefan can talk about the materials used. I know that I see some mammoth tooth end caps here.

    I was wondering whatever happened to those... Looking good, nice knives, Jan! IIRC, the red spacer is bakelite, everything else is mammoth or blackwood.

    Dave PM'd me that if I wanted to be surprised I shouldn't click on the link he provided. That decision took about 2 nanoseconds. Those handles look fantastic. Stefan, you are indeed an artist. The polished one is a Suisin Dreamcraft that Jon Broida got for me. I don't remember who the forger was. I gather Suisin has several guys who forge and sharpen for this series. The other one is by Mizuno from JCK.

    Thanks to Dave for the installation and Stefan for the design and construction of these handles. They are very cool. I will bring the others up tomorrow to Dave's to see what the whole collection looks like.

    Hah, I knew you'd click!

    I'm glad that you like them and I'll be seeing you tomorrow.
