    Man, I hardly even look at the blade. Stefan's handle is so beautiful!

    How that is some quality wood. Any idea what materials were used in the handle?

    Thanks David and Rami, it is an awesome knife.

    It was a custom order, I'm pretty sure it's the only truly left handed one of these ever made and as such it took almost a year from order to delivery.

    Nice mate, I love mine right up there with one of my fav knives, for such a thin knife they have really nailed the geometry and food release, awesome score!!

    The seller told me it was Kukui Nut for the wood and blonde buffalo horn for the ferrule and cap ... but I guess Stefan would know best.

    That sounds about right. Picture is very small, but I think I added red fiber spacers to that one to get more contrast between the materials. Not much spalted kukui nut out there. The wood is extremely light in its natural state and in this cross-cut pattern breaks very easily during stabilizing. I killed a number of pieces by trying to break them intentionally to make sure they were crack-free - which they were not... I think there is only one full piece left plus a few shorter ones for ferrules. That will be it, no more.

    BTW, lots of really nice knives here lately...

    Stefan
