    I personally like over the top. Love wood burls and horn of any type. The materials just have to jive together when the handle is finished. It just surprises me how decadent natural materials can be, and I feel like they're getting good use if I put them on a tool that will be used daily.

    I've briefly handled a knife with a bighorn sheep handle and hated it--something about the texture just made my skin crawl. Wood for me.

    I love wood. It feels very traditional and right in my hands.

    +2. I like clean and simple. Love Markos Arizona Desert Ironwood handles though, but thats about as crazy as I want to be :-)

    wyoming, closer to nowhere than somewhere.
    I am trying many different types still. I seemed to be drawn to redwood, but I don't like red. I am looking to trying some cool woods out soon.
