    I would say Bakelite, worlds first production plastic. So no to the natural coloring.

    Just showing off some more finished handles. These are NOT available because they have been ordered by customers. However, I uaven't heard back from these guys in a while and hope that maybe the peek in here (Anthony & Chris).

    A set for 210-240-270 gyutos in redwood, cascara, and spalted mango

    Here a gyuto handle from a premium blackwood piece (very subtle figuring) and mammoth ivory.

    Thank you Fran. I enjoy making them, wish I had more time for it. On one side it means a lot to me to hear nice words about them, on the other hand there are so many more talented craftsmen on this board that I really feel quite humble about them...

    Just playing around, sorry - crappy phone pics. Sticking an octagon handle on a 10" VG10 damascus blade with a bolster and a stick tang, then sanding the tip flush to the bolster, having the handle flare out into an octagon at the butt. Next time I would keep it a little thicker right behind the bolster, but it still feels good and looks much nicer than the pics show. Wood is spalted maple, black horn and amboyna spacers.
