    The #6 handle is crazy guys - I've NEVER seen anything like it. We're talking oval shape bone scales with amboyna core that wraps completely around through the butt end and with a buffalo ferrule!

    The handle will install with the striped amboyna section facing up and down. It's a surprisingly light handle.

    I can't wait to get this one on a knife.

    The #3 handle is a show stopper as well. If you're a spalted wood fan this one is crazy, it's almost 3D. It's not always so easy to make spalted woods look so good so I can appreciate what Stefan put into this one.

    The purpleheart/holly stripes are confusing me. That is a crazy handle.

    I've always had a soft spot for this particular handle...can't believe nobody has ever taken a chance on it.

    Dave, could this be put on a new CCK 1303 without too much difficulty?

    Tempting...

    I've never once done a CCK rehandle but I can picture it being not so different than the norm. I suppose getting the old handle off might be the most challenge maybe? Could be a fun project to try.

    Thanks for starting the sale, Dave. Just about the purple handle: I am also surprised that it is still here and several Hawaii knife aficionados have said the same But I cannot even claim all the fame for this, the handle part came pretty much as a round tube from ebay. I then inserted a piece of soft wood and drilled the slot into this. Also added a few more layers of finish for protection. I had to leave it round because the inlaid stripes of holly don't go very deep and if had changed the shape, it would probably have looked awkward. But I tapered the ferrule a bit to improve the grip over a completely round piece. Oh, and if you want a matching petty, I have a piece of the same tube in smaller diameter

    Do you have sizes on any of these handles? I really like 1,2, and 8 but both of the knives that need new handles are small boning knives in the 150-180mm range
