    That natural edge is definitley a great idea, never thought of it. Comes down to personal taste IMHO. I would see this more in a home environment than in a pro kitchen, but I do like te concept.

    As much as I like wany edges, I think that is just a bit too rough. If it was smoothed up some I think it would work better. For a working knife sharp points on the back end of the handle is problematical in my view.
    Otherwise, beautiful!

    I am being completely honest when I say this, but I friggin LOVE it. I have a piece of maple with a similar end and I wish I knew how to do wa-handle so I could utilize it.

    Me too After all, many people borrowed ideas from me, and in the end we all only try to get anywhere near to what Fish did.

    I think it is absolutely gorgeous, with that said I think if you sandblasted the back a little to round off the sharp points a little and clean out the valleys it will make the knife easier to clean and a lot safer in the kitchen. harder to clean pointy and jagged then smooth and rounded. i love the look and concept.

    I think the natural end is a cool idea but the end result doesn't work so well for me. It gives me the feeling that the end of the handle broke off - my eye or my mind is still expecting to see a finished end to the handle.
