Mokume is a precious or semi precious type of damascus(Gold/silver OR Gold/Silver/Copper OR Brass/Copper/Silver, or a lot of combinations of). What is on Devin's handle is damascus, I assume it is solid... That handle is amazing! I would love to do something like that.

I'm pretty sure you can steal "Wa handle with burl wood and mokume ferrule/endcap". It's not like Mr. Thomas' business model or anything! If he himself made another one the exact same way, it would still look totally different--different mokume pattern, different burl, etc. That is the beauty of this craft--one of a kind stuff.

+1. There's only so many ways you can stack a few layers together into a column. If you want to see a bunch of handles to plagiarize, go to Stefan's webpage: http://www.skeller.info/handles/gallery/index.php?cat=3
Hey, I saw that! ;) But I agree, I think the combination possibilities are endless, but there are a few main themes that just repeat themselves. I have a few ideas for 'new' things, but I never get to them...
