Both? Good call, though. I have fun with my honesuki, but I wanted to try something smaller. Maybe this can be my chicken slayer, and the other can be my TurkeyTamer. We shall seeeeee.

I’m getting his bird’s beak handle. I asked for something local or his favorite for the wood. He’s gonna get back to me with two choices.

Going with number 2. I should have asked for his maker's mark on the other side, since I'm correct handed. ah well. next time.

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!
