    Some new handles

    Haven't posted any handle pics in a while, here are a few new ones, just quick snapshots with sub-optimal lighting. They are a bit darker in reality.

    Did you take a hike on the Nu'uanu Judd trail and cut that Cook pine?

    WOW Nice

    Will the Amboyna, spalted hickory be a good match for my small yanagi blade that is at Dave place waiting for a handle?

    Just to clarify, were these made to order, or are they available?

    Nice looking work, as always Stefan. That's a nice piece of spalted signature you came up with for that handle.

    That signature and snakewood combo is quite nice.

    You have gigantic cajones to be grinding at these kind of materials all day. I'd lose water weight from all the nervous sweating.

    Thanks guys. Still waiting for more of that signature wood in this quality to come in. Ken, the hickory handle is an order, but we could see if the signature handle works - or the ironwood one I had shown you.

    Most of these are orders. The ones that are available are the two koa handles, the large amboyna handle, and one of the pair of Cooke pine handles - not yet sure which one, we'll have to check which one works best for the knife it was ordered for. I have a few more finished that are free, and a few more will be finished soon. Right now my problem is that I don't have a car to get to the shop, still waiting for a new computer to be flown in for the crappy Sebring. If I get the next weekend in the shop, I should have a few more and will update my 'available handles' info. I have a few more black ones similar to the one above, all with mammoth tooth endcap but it can be a correspondingly colored bakelite spacer or endcap.

    Stefan

    Aaeh, free as in 'not made to order', not as in 'no money involved'
