    The knife showed up today.
    The photos don't even come close to how good the handle looks.
    I really really like the copper with the Koa.
    Very nice work. I am extremely happy with Matt's work on my handle.


    A couple handle closeups.

    why don't you do something about the saya? It's ashame that you've coupled such a beautiful handle with such a sh!tty saya.

    I think the saya looks fine. Personally, I prefer plain-looking sayas (but still well made), and have the handles be the star of the show. That's just me.

    Regards,

    The koa doesn't have enough curl. I'd send it back.
