I'm the lucky owner and all I can say is that the photos (as nice as they are!) does NOT do this handle justice!Here's a little 75mm Takeda NAS Kogatana AS with a custom handle I made out of desert ironwood burl sandwiching a core of 3000 yr old ancient bog oak with nickel silver pins brought to a satin finish. The handle shape is a modified butcher's handle. You like?

I can't decide which I like better - how it looks or how they feels!
Every detail (the pins, the bog oak, the buffalo horn, and of course the wood!) is so perfectly selected and meticulously finished.
Thank you Dave!!!
