    I don't mind the live edge/end, but the spacer doesn't fit IMO. It is a bit thick and bright and draws the eye away from the unique handle. Just my 2 cents. Otherwise, strong work.

    Yeah, the spacer is a little stark in comparison, and the rough end is certainly startling. But I think it is very distinctive. Certainly unique look to it, though I'd want there to be an aesthetic reason why the exterior was left intact, I.E. it has some kind of unusual color/character to it.

    I'm not sure what you all have been smoking. The spacer is monstrous and the butt is an abomination! That said, I'm sure there is a niche market for something like that. Why don't you make the entire handle out of a small unfinished log?

    It's one of those love it or hate it things I guess.... I think it's cool. It works well on a KU blade. It's like the whole thing is left finished just enough to be functional and beautiful, yet still retain some of its origin.

    You know, I actually thought about that, in a way.

    40 euro/100g. Is that good enuff?

    Yes, the spacer looks like its coming from pussyring but the end is cool and fresh idea and goes well with the finish on the blade.

    The thing that bothers me is that the end of handle is so rough and brutal but the rest is shines up and polished... Doesnt fit together.

    Few dishwasher sessions and itll be OK

    My thoughts as well. The front part of the handle does not match the blade and end of the handle. If it were a little more rustic it would work better for my tastes.

    i bet it's like the cigars that have uncut ends: you only notice it until you actually use the thing as intended. that said, i would really need to try it out for myself to give it a proper critique, so who should i send my address to?

    I mentioned the spacer up thread, but just to add a bit, I also think the live edge goes a bit too far. There are many ways (I think) to do a smoothed-out live edge that maintains the 'wild' character while also appealing to more people. Maybe an angular/smoothed-out/live edge would give the same feel and mix well with the polished handle.
