    I really like it, but you knew this already seeing as I bug you about it everytime I see you. A $15-20 upcharge is fine by me.

    That's a cheap price to pay for good quality white marble horn.

    I will try to procure it then.

    Thank you for your input.

Putting blond horn on ironwood was an eye opener for me.

    I personally love that look. That's the one customization I always make if it's available. White horn with golden ironwood looking handle.

    I would definitely consider a white marble horn ferrule for the custom I will be ordering from you, once you start a new lineup in January.

    Did you end up making these Marko? I would love to see pictures if so...

    I don't know what the difference is between "blonde" and "white."

    It's on my to do list.

    Cow horn I have is 1" long. It's too short for ferrule, unless it is used in conjunction with a 1/4 thick metal piece at the tip, like Bob Kramer meiji.

    I worked out the construction in my head, now need to make a prototype.

    Blond and white horn is basically cow/steer horn. There are different grades of cow horn, and once in a while, literally white horn could be found. Best horn comes from South East Asia. Domestic (US) horn has delamination issues.
