    Custom Stefan Handle

    Hey folks,

    For sale is a sexy custom handle by Stefan I ordered a while back, and which recently popped up on my doorstep. Ferrule and endcap are redwood burl, spacers are copper, and the handle itself is satinwood burl with some lovely chatoyance. Stefan's work on this was flawless, and while he made it exactly to my specifications it didn't quite "click" for me in hand (I'm fussy), so I figured I'd give others a chance at it. There are a few microgrooves and voids here and there, but nothing worth epoxy. Roughly measured it's 142mm long, 24x20 at the ferrule, and 25x22 at the end. Built for a 270mm gyuto.



    Looking for $150 shipped, though considering trades (whole or in part) for stones, Sabs, awesome Tom Gray pottery, random kitchen goodies, salted almonds.

    Cheers!

    It is! And for the record, Stefan graciously offered to take the handle back, but I don't feel like my random taste swings should put him out (especially when he made exactly what I asked for).

    You lost your mind, that's beautiful!

    I'm pricing out a 10kg bag of salted almonds right now, I'm afraid shipping might kill it though.

    I'll drop it down to $135 if that helps your decision making. Less if you can pony up a finishing stone and/or a can of Blue Diamond Smokehouse almonds.
