    The "spalted Cook pine, horn ferrule, gyuto 270" looks familiar Stefan.

    O.k., things are moving faster than I am again... Some handles have already sold before I had a chance to put them up individually. For now, I will just update what is still available and add the prices, and I can upload individual pics later. BTW, the yanagi handles are also available, but two are already pending or under consideration.

    One more thing: Some handles seem more popular than others, some have been around for a while, and I want to move a bit of inventory out if I can. So, I divided them into two groups.

    For every one handle you buy from group 1, you will get
    any one handle in group 2 for 30% off.

    Priority for choices from group 2 will be given to those who just paid or reserved a handle today or yesterday. Please add $8 for shipping in the US to all prices.

    Group 1

    Yanagi handle 1 (2nd pic below), Hawaiian mango, horn ferrule, brass spacer - $145
    Yanagi handle 2 (2nd pic below), rosewood burl, spalted cook pine ferrule, copper spacer - $145 on hold
    Yanagi handle 3 (2nd pic below), Hawaiian curly koa, Hawaiian spalted Norfolk pine ferrule, nickel silver spacer - $145
    Yanagi handle 4 (2nd pic below), Hawaiian spalted kukui nut, redwood burl ferrule, stainless steel spacer - $145 pending
    1. Spalted Hawaiian Norfolk pine, gyuto handle - star of show IMHO, beautiful piece of wood - SOLD
    4. koa with maple ferrule and end cap, red fiber spacers, around 180 gyuto, nakiri, maybe even deba - $145
    5. blackwood, dyed burl, black ash spacer, smaller gyuto - $135
    6. blackwood, horn ferrule, jasper spacer, mammoth tooth endcap, small deba, 180 gyuto (a little on the sturdy side, only 124mm long) - $150
    10. ebony, koa ferrule, burl end piece, slim handle, maybe a 270 funayuki or a slim yanagi - $135
    11. spalted Cook pine, horn ferrule, gyuto 270 - SOLD
    12. blackwood, black horn ferrule, honey horn end cap (ferrule was supposedly honey also but when finished, only black remained...), gyuto - $135
    13. blackwood, dyed teal burl, mammoth tooth end cap, gyuto, deba - $150
    14. koa, buckeye burl ferrule, amboyna spacer, slimmer gyuto or suji/yanagi - pending
    16. Masur birch burl, black horn spacer, cream horn ferrule (you can see leftover buffing compound that has not yet been cleaned out, this one has a somewhat rustic surface because of the burl wood), gyuto handle - $150

    Group 2

    2. Black ash burl, amboyna spacer, horn ferrule, smaller gyuto, deba - $140
    3. bone scales, amboyna core, oval shape with strong taper, 240 gyuto - $130
    7. purple heart and holly stripes, honey horn ferrule and end cap, round with flattened ferrule, large gyuto or cleaver - $130
    8. walnut burl, spalted signature ferrule, horn end cap, oval, small deba? - $130
    9. redwood burl, afzelia tip, horn spacer and end cap, thinner handle for petty - $135 pending
    15. blue dyed birdseye maple, black ash burl ferrule, petty handle - $130
    17. Hawaiian milo (I think), spalted maple ferrule, fiber spacers, gyuto handle, - $135
    18. ambrosia maple, redwood burl ferrule. - $120 (price lowered a bit, there is one of the octagon sides not perfectly straight, you have to look for it in the right light to see it, though...)





    I hope this is not too complicated, please let me know if you have questions. I will post some individual pics of some of the available handles soon.

    Just a quick update, I had a couple of PMs and some handles are under consideration, but not much has moved, yet. Should have made more yanagi handles... I am also spending more time in the shop than on the PC these days, but I will add a bit more info shortly, I hope. Just in case you are thinking about it: That #2 handle is a steal for 30% off, I just had it in my hands this morning...

    O.k.,

    here are some extras I would like to offer. All previous offers/sales are void as of now. There is some overlap with the ones shown above, but others are 'new'.

    1) Kauri whitebait handle with marbled horn ferrule and mokume end cap. The end cap still needs to be etched and I expect it to be a little more pronounced when finished. Length, 143mm, 24x22 at the tip, 27x22 at the end. This will work well as a handle for a 240 gyuto, BUT: the thicker mokume piece as an end cap makes this quite butt-heavy, i.e. I would recommend this handle for a heftier gyuto, or even better for something like a kiritsuke. This is all prime material, so $185 + $8 S&H. Looks much better in reality than on the pics...

    P.S. There is a similar one that is with Dave at the moment, just a little thinner than this one and with a damascus end pice, i.e. not quite as butt-heavy and a bit cheaper at $165 - maybe I can get Dave to add a pic...






    2) Koa handle with amboyna spacer and buckeye burl ferrule, all stabilized. Length 141mm, 23x20 at the tip, 25x23 at the end. This is a darker piece of koa, more a 'wild' pattern than the regular stripes you often see. It's kind of an 'in-between' size, could fit a 210 gyuto but also a shorter yanagi. $135 + $8 S&H.






    3) African blackwood handle, black and white fossil coral end cap, mammoth ivory ferrule. Length is 149mm, 23.5x22 at the tip, 25.5x23 at the end. Nice, clean handle. Can work on a 240 or 270 gyuto (maybe a touch long for a 240, so I would not put it on an ultra thin 240), but it would also work for e.g. a 300 yanagi. The fossil materials do drive the price a bit, $195 + $8 S&H.






    4) O.k., this one looks almost the same, but there is one difference: African blackwood, fossil coral end piece, but the ferrule is Elforyn (material mostly used in pool cue making to replace ivory). Length is 148mm, 24x21 at the tip, 25x24 at the end. Should work with the same knife sizes as the last one. Elfory is also not cheap, but cheaper than mammoth ivory... $150 + $8 S&H.






    5) Handle from Hawaiian hala wood Pandanus chamissonis), copper spacer, African blackwood ferrule. I haven't seen this wood used very often, almost looks like palm wood but is more stable with really nice patterns. 146mm long, 24x20 at the tip, 26x21.5 at the end. I think this is a prototypical gyuto 240 handle. $145 + $8 S&H






    6) Curly koa handle, stainless steel spacer, marbled horn ferrule. Really nice koa - I got that koa from Mark a while ago when I was short with stabilized koa, nice quality, and the ferrule horn is also a nice piece. Clearly a yanagi handle, made for a 330, length is 160mm, 24.5 x 19 at the tip, 26 x 22 at the end. $160 + $8 S&H






    7) Redwood burl handle, reconstituted lapis lazuli spacers, black horn ferrule and end cap. I made this a while ago for someone who asked me to hold it - that was over a year ago and I never heard back (and lost the contact info), so I am offering it for sale now. The colors in the picture are a bit off, the lapis is a rich dark blue and it's a really nice redwood piece, but you can see that is also has a few micro checks like most burl woods do. $145 + $8 S&H






    8) African blackwood handle, black horn ferrule, red jasper spacer, red and white mammoth tooth end cap. This has been around for a while, not sure why it hasn't sold, yet? Length is 123mm, 24.5x20 at the tip, 25x22 at the end. Maybe it is a little wide for a petty, but it would be great on a 150mm ajikiri or deba, and if you don't mind it a little on the short side, you could also use it on a 165 nakiri. There is a 3mm check at the tip of the ferrule, won't affect anything, but am just lowering the price a bit, so instead of my current rate of $150, I am asking $130 + $8 S&H.





    9) This one also may look familiar, dyed birdseye maple, black ash burl ferrule. That one originally had a brass ferrule, but I decided I didn't like it all that much and re-worked it, also slimmed it down a bit. It now is 127mm long, 20.5 x 19 at the tip, 24 x 21 at the end. Quite a bit of taper on this one, but I think it's perfect for a 150mm petty. $130 + $8 S&H.






    10) Another one that has been around for a bit: Masur birch burl handle (wood from Craig Stevens), black horn spacer, marbled horn ferrule. Great for a 240 gyuto with a length of 142mm, 24 x 21 at the tip, 25 x 22 at the end. You can see that the burl wood is a bit on the rustic side with small fissures and checks,but these are all superficial and not as visible in real life as in this enlarged picture. I just decided not to smear them closed with epoxy. Because it has not found any love previously, how about $125 + $8 S&H.





    11) Belize rosewood burl, art. tortoise spacer, curly koa ferrule. Still one of my favorite woods, gread pattern on this one. But: If you take a caliper to it, you will see that the symmetry is not perfect on this one - nothing obvious and you really have to look for it. But it annoys me, and if I try to straighten it out, it will very likely be too thin for anything, so I am offering this one as a 'second'. With 146mm length, 22 x 19 at the tip and 23.5 x 21 at the end, I would put this on a 270 yanagi, maybe a 240 yanagi. $100 + $8 S&H.






    12) Here's a nice one: Curly koa, marbled horn ferrule and end cap, black and red fiber spacers. Originally made to order, but it took me forever (messed up the first one..) and the customer passed on it when I was done, so here it is. Length is 149mm, 23.5 x 20 at the tip, 25 x 21.5 at the end. Made for a 270 yanagi, but you could also use it as a slimmer handle on a 240 gyuto if you don't mind it being a few mm longer than usual. This is a very nice piece of koa, very 3-D, impossible to capture in a picture. $160 + $8 S&H.






    13) Same story, almost the same size as #12: African blackwood handle, spalted maple spacer and end cap, black horn ferrule. 149.5mm long, 25 x 21 at the tip, 26 x 23 at the end. Not 100% sure about the knife recommendation. It is a touch wide for a yanagi handle, but should go with a 300mm yanagi, also with a 270 or 300 sujihiki. Should also work with a 270 gyuto. I only sanded this one to 1200 grit, so you still see the nice wood pattern in the blackwood. $140 + $8 S&H.







    14) Here is a Hawaiian mango handle, brass spacer, black horn ferrule. This is clearly best for a 300mm yanagi, handle length is 157mm, 23.5 x 20 at the tip and 24.5 x 21.5 at the end. The picture shows it to be a bit rougher than I see it in real life, even with my reading glasses on. I think there is still a little of the wax from the buffing compound visible on the picture. The mango is a bit on the porous side, not a very heavy wood before stabilizing, and you can see the sood structure very well. I didn't want to smear it with epoxy because as it is, it has a bit more of a wood feeling than many other stabilized woods. $145 + $8 S&H.






    15) Don't have a picture of it but thought I'd mention it: A 'basic design' curly koa handle with African blackwood ferrule. Nice piece of koa with one 'fissure' that doesn't affect the handle in any way, just a bit of a rustic touch that will hardly even be visible if you put it on the underside. Will try to add a snapshot later. Typical gyuto 240 size, 143mm long, 25 x 21 at the tip, 27 x 22 at the end. $130 + $8 S&H.


    I vaguely remember that I talked with people about some of them, but I don't remember or find a confirmed order on any of the ones listed here. I hope I did not overlook anything... Oh, I do wait to hear back from someone reg. #s 3 and 4, so you may have to get in line there.

    Thanks for checking, please let me know if you have any questions,

    Stefan

    Number 8 is incredible. Sadly I don't have anything that would work for it.

    Thanks Andrew - but your post made me check again and I realized I had used the wrong pic - the one shown now is the correct one. I had made several of those, including one with a red bakelite spacer (which was what I showed by mistake...). But I don't think this one here is much uglier
