Hey guys, this thread is a central place for those of you with orders with me to see the handle materials I have available, and potentially choose what strikes your fancy.

I have a block that looks like it could be from the same chunk of wood as #8. Really nice piece, as all of Craig's pieces seem to be. He (and now Pierre) have some of the best Buckeye Burl I have ever seen, great blues and purples and copper in there.

Wow those are really something Pierre.

Could you also put what kind of wood each is?

Which one do you guys think would go well with a damascus blade?

Hmmmm, I'd be interested in no 13 for mine.... Plain stainless pin(s) if needed.

I like that it looks almost scary, kind of "Blair Witch Project"

Man I like pretty much all of those. Threads like this make me feel like I'm part termite or something.:drool:

Great stuff, Pierre!
I'm looking for some box elder Burl with nice light green and tan threading. Do you have anything like that? :p

Now that's customer service there folks! Great looking piece.

Craig's wood sells knives:
"Hey, I have these woods for sale."
"Ill take that one."
"You have to buy a knife to put it on."
"Ok, Ill take one."

Pierre, If i'm the one for 13, will it be enough for a Wa? If I'm not the one, a similar pattern/colour will do nicely!

Thanks!

I emailed with Craig over the past few days and he mentioned it's a buyers' market right now. I didn't watch the scales, but last round several didn't sell and many for the starting bid, so this may be a good time to keep your eyes open. I got some nice blocks for little over the starting bid - needed to secure my world domination on raindrop pattern Honduran rosewood ;)

Wow, those are great. Are those from Craig too? I really need to pay attention to his bids.

No these are from another vendor. He has a huge selection, not all fancy like this stuff, but still very nice.

here are some of the blocks I had ordered for wa handles. I gave them the hose treatment to "brighten" them up a bit.

WOW. You have scored some really spectacular burls there, Sir. Looking forward so seeing them develop into handles on your beautiful blades.
