    Sorry, forgot to answer. I never worked with spalted pecan but have a handle on one of my knives. It looks more like a darker spalted maple to me, the base color of signarure wood is more a creamy, lighter color like ho wood.

    Just bumping this one. Three of those are still available, lowered the prices bit. Not sure why #s 1 and 4 are still here, they are really nice. If #4 doesn't sell in a few day it will go on my Carter suji...

    1. Hawaiian signature wood with a whitebait kauri handle, made with a longer suji in mind, should also work on a 270 gyuto, $110, 152 x 22/24 x 25/27
    4. Another very long and slim one, Belize rosewood, kukui nut ferrule, copper spacer, perfect for a 330 yanagi, $135, 157 x 20/22 x 22/25
    5. Hawaiian milo, spalted signature ferrule, fiber spacers, I see this on a 270 gyuto, $79, 153 x 23/25 x 25/27

    Thanks!

    Stefan

    Ok, you had your chance. The underestimated & under-appreciated rosewood handle goes onto my 8.5 sun Carter suji - I may have to shorten it a bit - and some poor bastids will have to deal with getting the other two in a giveaway or a PIF. I expect about half a dozen other handles to be available in 2-3 weeks.

    Thanks, Erik! Going slow, but working on it. While working on some more repetitive orders, I always try to throw in a few after my own ideas and designs, things that just pop into my head or pieces that speak to me while I move them from one place to another The repetition is not in the custom orders, but some larger orders I am working on. Doing a few things here and there to play around keeps me motivated and (almost) sane. Wish I had a summer break to spend more time in the shop.
