    Two more with Mark's turbo redwood lace burl


    Redwood burl and creme colored ferrule.






    Redwood burl, musk ox ferrule, fossil coral between black fiber and copper spacers. The coral is a bit of work, very porous, needs several rounds of filling with CA glue before finishing it. But I like it when it's done.

    P.S. No idea why embedding pics sometimes works and sometimes doesn't...

    HOLY COW. Dat fossil coral, with everything else, is incredible.

    That's my favorite one from you to this day.

    Here are a few more:

    Small signature and marbled horn handle for a paring knife.




    Blackwood handles with M3 'white mokume' reconstituted metal, bakelite, and spalted mango






    These are all koa handles. The first one is my current favorite, a dark, almost quilted koa. Usually the darker koa either comes from higher elevations of from older trees. This one here has a marbled ferrule and a musk ox spacer (btw, that one is available, sized for a 270 gyuto, PM me if interested). The middle one is kind of premium-heirloom on one side and spalted on the other, really nice combo. The third one is unstabilized koa (it will remain here on the islands, so I am not too worried). All three look much better in reality and have a nice chatoyance even though not the craziest I have ever seen.
