I like 2. Any chance you could get a more "blingy" spacer with build? Malachite or Turquois - or something to pop?

I like the understatedness. I almost prefer no ferrule.

I'm probably with you Bill - no.2 looks perfect as it is :)

Though if ever you or anyone else does ever want to make a handle with a bit of bling in the spacer here's a fun technique I came up with, and is considerably easier than faffing around with stone...

This is 5 minute epoxy coloured with mica and cast in a beer bottle cap:

Remove when just set, a little smear of oil in the cap beforehand will help get it out easily too. Then epoxy yer handle blank together (obviously this pic is of a different spacer - mica powder is dirt cheap and comes in any colour you can imagine):

Et Voila... cool huh!

But yeah - handle 2 without any bling looks ace!

The chibi-hone has slayed one chicken, and I really enjoy the shorter length. For me, my wife, and two (2 and 7) kids, the smallest bird I can find will do.

I was concerned the handle was a bit long, but I found myself adjusting my hand along it, so it was all useful. The amount of ferrule still gets me, but less so every day(seven days so far).
