Amboyna/Spalted maple burl gets my vote
More partial to the buckeye myself...
There is only one God, and his name is Death. And there is only one thing we say to Death: 'Not Today...'
Another for the Amboyna/Spalted maple burl.
The buckeye would look better on my cleaver...
Older and wider.
Let's mod this one to accommodate both. Just do some removable rivets that lock and unlock. One day one handle, another handle the next.
They both look great. I guess I'm leaning toward the buckeye.
No matter how high the throne,
there sits but an ass.
You need to invent some sort of easily changeable handle.
Maybe something with a strong magnet hidden inside.
Have all your handles in a display, then "I feel like the buckeye handle today".
and put it on the knife you are going to use.
If it becomes a big success, ....we're partners........right?
For that cleaver, buckeye. Overall the maple....
The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!
Looks like the Maple wins 5 to 4 votes. I am going to try to have this on the knife tonight. Thanks
