    Good call brianh, this is a great thread. Lots of stunning craftsmanship on display.

    I'm only just starting to manage my knife addiction, now I can feel a handle addiction developing.

    Maybe this should be a sticky, like the newest knife and patina threads?

    Wow, those are very nice! It must feel good to use handles that you made your self.

    Actually yeah, it is pretty cool. Definitely gives you a deeper feeling of ownership.

    I usually prefer simple wa handles but this combo became one of my favourites
    Musk ox , mallee , walrus Ivory and copper
