As always beautiful work guys

I especially like that walnut handle on that little deba, nice combo IMHO. Hope you will have fun with them!
I was originally concerned that the handle for the yanagi was going to have too narrow of a profile, but looking at the pic I think it will work alright - the length will help to balance it. The original (Ho/Horn) handle on the knife was way too big...
The handle on the deba is scrumptious(!) and looks like it will really compliment the thick blade of the knife.
I'm in Stefan's queue for a custom handle for my Carter nakiri - then the whole set will have fancy pants...

I love the "black" handle on that Carter, Stefan.
Thanks, glad you guys like them. For the black one I was thinking more something like a fuguhiki or a takohiki, but now that I see it on the knife, it looks fine to me. But it clearly is on the slimmer side.
