It's time for me to say thanks to KKF for everything that I learned about knives and handles making. So here are some handles that I'm planning to giveaway: Some of those were made for particular knives and thus has wholes already shaped for particular tangs. Other handles were made specially for this giveaway and has only a pilot holes for tangs. Let me just call all of these "practice handles". I'm experimenting with finish, shapes and so on. Please don't expect those to be on par with professional work by other KKF craftsmans. Terms So here's the deal: if you want a handle and know how to install it yourself (or know someone who can do it for you), then I'll ask you to fill out google docs questionnaire. There you'll need to put check marks for all the handles that you are interested in. Basic on this data, after 10 days or so, I'll randomly choose new owner for each handle. Shipping As most of you are from US here, Chris (knyfeknerd) kindly agreed to help me with shipping. So all the handles for US members would be sent to Chris in single package, and then he'll send them to owners. This should save shipping costs for US members. I'll ask new owners to cover shipping costs. Shipping from Russia will cost somewhere between 10-20$ maybe less, maybe more, depending on destination. Warranty I'm afraid I'm not able to provide you with any warranty on those handles. Just take them as is. Some of them might break when mounting, other may serve you well for years. Description of handles All of them are different. Made using different techniques, from different materials, with different sanding and completely different finish. I'll try to give a short description of each one. For visual size comparison there's a 150 petty on each photo. 1 Cocobolo with Ebony ferrule and bright yellow spacer (some kind of plastic). Small handle made for 150mm Shigefusa. Very tapered. Satin finish. 2 Maple and Ebony ferrule. Made from Burl Source stabilized wood few month ago. Small handle with minor taper and a pilot hole. 3 Rain Tree and Cocobolo spacer. Small handle without any taper. Pilot hole. 4 Karelian Birch stabilized by me with Corian spacer. On photo you can see the wide side, while turned 90 degrees it would be almost twice thinner. Small handle with pilot hole. 5 Cocobolo with Amboyna spacer. Medium sized handle with a strong taper. Pilot hole. 6 Alder burl with Gidgee ferrule. Medium sized handle with some taper and pilot hole. 7 Walnut Burl with Corian spacer. Medium sized handle with some taper and pilot hole. 8 Rain Tree with Ebony ferrule. Medium sized handle with some taper and pilot hole. 9 Karelian Birch, Koa ferrule and Ebony spacer. Nicely figured Birch that I tried stabilizing myself. Wide side on photo. Turned 90 degrees would be half thinner. Very glossy finish. Pilot hole. 10 Palisander and Walnut ferrule. Made few month ago for Watanabe 150mm sabaki. Wide side on photo. Pretty big hole for Watanabe tang. 11 Bocote with Horn ferrule. Medium sized with some minor taper. Pilot hole. 12 Alder Burl with Bocote ferrule and two tone Ebony spacer. Wide side on photo. Pilot hole. Next 3 handles are made bigger and would need at least 210mm long knife. 13 Cocobolo with Ebony ferrule and Corian spacer. Some minor taper and pilot hole. 14 Cocobolo with Ebony ferrule. Some minor taper and pilot hole. 15 Cocobolo with Ebony ferrule and white raffir spacer. Was made few month ago for my Shigefusa 210 guyto, but was too long for my taste. Wide side on photo. Huge hole for Shigefusa tang. In this short video overview I tried to briefly show you how handles looks from different angles (sorry for the quality and language): And finally, here's a link to google docs that you'd need to fill if you are interested in. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1uZdYMp_LFx4Y1i-FqKPscMDN-nppzgZzs1nfHfvzv0k/viewform?usp=send_form and it's possible to change your answers later if you choose to do so. I hope 10 days would be enough for everyone to make their choices. Please don't hesitate to post any ideas or comment. All feedback is welcomed. Good luck everyone!
