    What's the one with a white/marbled ferrule?
    my digi scale is busted at home but its substantial handle i wouldnt say its heavy but obviously more hefty then most wood handles. the white marbled ferrule handle is white turquoise ferrule, buffalo horn spacer, white and blue box elder body and buffalo horn and mother of pearl end cap

    You started the thread hoping for some inspiration. It's only been a few hours but I've already been totally blown away by the offerings. Can't wait to see more posts. Keep them coming people.

    Recent Instagram auction from Anton. Walnut with Blackwood ferrule and crushed Mammoth tooth spacer with brass accent spacers. Pictures do NOT do it justice. Just waiting for a special knife to install it on.
    Could it be ideal for the Kato Damascus Nakiri?

    I was hoping. Got the knife in today!!! and it is a beast. Still at work so I can't weigh it BUT I think the Kato will be too heavy for the handle (sobs quietly). The balance point will be too far forward. Need to spend more time with it but first impression is one of pkjames handles would be a better fit in terms of weight/balance.

    The handle I got from Anton is very light for it's size. More suited IMHO for maybe my Gesshin Gengetsu?
    Oh wait, you mean we can customize our signatures?

    I think a review might be in order, oh queen of Nakiri!
