    Silly wood for a handle or not ?

    Dyed purple wood, silly or different ?

    I thought about this piece, I think it would look great with a mirror finished knife, not silly at all, and truly unique.

    I'm sure that will look nice when it's finished. If you want to see silly, search for butch's 'smashed hippie' mycarta

    Take a look at Daves re-handle galley, Stefans website and the Fish gallery. Should pretty much answer that.

    If handled right, purple looks regal, not flashy and ostentatious.
