    oooooh, yeah the shipping would cost 3x what the wood is worth.
    I don't know of any exotic wood purveyors in Europe off hand.
    Good luck with the search.

    Try looking for "ebano per il tornio". I saw some 38mm square blanks in various places.

    One more thought - your handle is wonderfully minimalist and clean, but what about a handle with metal spacers? That would add some weight at the handle end without needing to get ebony.

    i think you read my mind :) the handle i'm making has two brass spacers,but still doesn't seem to make a big difference,i've read also lignum vitae is extremely heavy
