    I'm just curious, what made it a PITA to do? I haven't tried a D shape or Octagon Wa style yet and I'm debating about them or just sticking to rounded oval shaped handles.
    An octagon is very simple,you square you block,set your tapers and facets all on a disc sander.Free handing an ovalish side,two round sides, a pointed side,and double taper was a bit of a challenge.

    Ah, ok. The few Wa handles I have done are oval shaped, and I wasn't sure what was making the D shape harder; I figured it was the sharp straight line on the belly of the D. I still haven't done an Octagon Wa style handle yet!

    I too look forward to seeing it on a knife.
    Right now it looks like a really expensive lipstick case.

    I love D-shaped handles, and have three. This one just rocks.
