    Weird. Blackwood behaves like all of the other rosewoods for me. The brittleness of ebony is why i replaced it with blackwood in the first place.

    I use blackwood all the time, and i love it. I prefer it over ebony as it is substantially more stable. I like the new handles Marko.

    I was, but would come empty-handed. More about it soon.

    Marko, just curious - what are your thoughts on using a synthetic material for the bolster, such as G10 or micarta, instead of wood to avoid th eissue of the exposed end grain? Cheers! mpp

    I have always used natural materials and would like to keep it this way for as long as I can obtain them. Nothing against synthetics, just personal preference for natural materials.

    Marko, I like your new hand but I also like your classic handle very much!! Do you consider use marble/brown horn, musk-ox horn or ivory ferrule ??

    No elephant ivory, any horn (including musk horn) if can be procured or supplied, other ivories (tusks) unless from endangered species.
