    When I wrote that I wasn't sure if anyone made d's anymore.

    Ty Ecchef for the pics. Another stunner handle.
    Chewie's the man.

    Here is Daniel's Yoshikane with it's new Stefan handled installed. This is a very unique handle - it is an oval shape with bone scales, an amboyna core that wraps completely around through the butt end, and come with a buffalo ferrule on top!
    I applaud Daniel for taking a chance on this one.



    BTW, the pictures suck, the knife looks soooooooooo much better in real life.

    Here is Dave's suji with it's new Stefan handle installed. I'm unsure of the woods used on this one but I'm sure Stefan can help us out here. I really like how this one came out, it's a great match up.

    Dave, It did come out well - all the more so because it was a rehab. I originally bought it for a 300 but then it took a header and met the tile floor.

    I sent it back to Stefan thinking I was SOL but he graciously repaired the handle, re-sized it for a 240 and refused payment for the fix.

    Many thanks all around.

    Regards,

    Glad to see that this worked out, Dave. The wood is one of my last pieces of spalted kukui nut. That wood is very light, and cross-cut like this it may have hidden cracks. With pieces like that, I always try to break them before I work them - if they hold up I make a handle, and if they break I have two ferrule pieces... Yours may have had a hidden crack that only made a difference when it was sanded down and then it broke when it dropped. Glad to see that it found another knife, and it looks good in the combo. Btw, spacer is stainless steel and the ferrule is redwood burl.

    Stefan

    P.S. The bone handle looks like it makes a good match also. I always liked that one but wasn't sure anybody else would...

    The suji is outrageous, and Stephan is remarkably gracious.
