    True that. I use small leftovers to make pins, but maybe I will give an end cup a try one of these days.

    Man that is pretty!

    Here is the plan, sell it to anyone over 45, they would never see that "glaring defect" .

    You can't scrap that, on the close up picture the handle measures ~80mm across and that little epoxy seam is ~1mm high.
    Finish the handle and put it on a blade, it's too pretty to go in the bin.

    thats too bad. i can understand your wanting to scrap it but it sure looks way better then a stock handle.

    maybe just do a giveaway or something. someone that may not normally upgrade their stock ho handle to a very nice handle.

    Although I understand you Mario I have to agree with the other guys that this is way too nice to scrap. It either needs a re-work like jmwhite suggested or just ignore it because like dough said, "it sure looks way better then a stock handle"

    So don't chuck this one in the bin!

    I hate when that happens, but I would still consider it tolerable from what I see in your picture. I still think I have yet to make a perfect handle, every one of them has a little something that could have been better. After spending a few hours with them, you see much more flaws than anybody else ever would.
