    Hey, that's a great look!

    Love the materials and the angles at the bolster and butt of the handle.

    Personally taste only, but I may have gone with just two or perhaps even a single pin here.

    I like the over all shape. Dont love the woods used. But see a ton of potential for sure.

    I think there is a bit much going on here for me... Subtlety and simplicity are sexy.

    ** Edit: The shape is really nice! It looks great to use. I'd love to see it with 4 pieces and less contrast with the ferrul. The red is a bit much for me, even some blue Mastodon would be more sleek IMHO. I'm no expert, my opinion holds as much water as a colander.
    It's not the Answer it's the Experience

    +1 - the red bolster doesn't do it for me somehow and shows up more pink on my Ipad screen. A more subtle darker red would definitely be my personal preference.

    She does look pink in the pic,but it looks red in real life.The G-10 was less red,Stefan do you think some bake-lite would have been more consistent in color then micarta.If the customer is happy that's all that really counts.
