    Butt serially, what a great handle, and a great pairing with that blade!

    Well, I showed the handle to my daughter and she really likes it, she keeps looking at it (not pissed at all). She said the amber looks like clouds at sunset trapped in a jar, a very beautiful and eloquent way to describe it. Kids are amazing, if you guys don't have any I highly recommend you get a couple.

    If the amber gets dark, you can refresh it by putting it in the sun. My kids wear amber necklaces that somehow actually help immensely with teething pain and they get dull and don't work as well, and putting them in the sun activates some kind of chemical in them and gets em going, and they look better. The crunchy folks call it "recharging". My wife saw this and said, "It's amber? That HAS to be good for you!"
