I seem to have fallen for buckeye Burl in the past couple of days.
This is the first time I have used Buckeye. I like It!
Please do take this the right way...
I think sometimes less is more. Some of the handle patterns are too busy for me. Why not try something simpler, only one piece of very patterned wood and highlight the beauty of that with calmer pieces around it?
That said; The handles show very good workmanship and there are some truly beautiful pieces of wood there!
I would never take an honest opinion the wrong way. Thanks. In my quest to learn to make handles I have discoverd the really complex ones are much more of a challenge and fun to make, but you are right they are getting busy, thats why I asked for opionons on the last one I made, as I think it is my busiest yet. It is easy to get carried away. It was fun to make though.
That's another good looking handle,I have no issues with a "bizzy" handle.
It does work really well. Thanks again for the help Stefan
