    Koa Handle

    Here is a handle I have for sale. It is a piece of crushed velvet Koa from Mark at Burl Source.
    I used some brass spacers to break up the Koa and too give the appearance of there being a ferrule and an end cap.
    I like slender handles and I would not hesitate to put this on a 240mm knife but it may be more appropriate for a 210 or even a 190mm nakiri or santoku.

    I am asking $120 shipped or $135 If you would like it mounted.

    Thanks for looking.

    Sadly, I don't have anything to put it on, but that looks great Karl.

    Very cool handle.
    I really like the different size spacers and the way the brass goes with the koa.

    Very different. Has kind of a retro look. Nice proportions. Good job, Karl.
