    this is mine. And yes, it's on a shig (the 'hello shiggy' continues to be a beast). Was a present for my lovely wife, who still uses it to this day (alternating with a gorgeous TX from Steffen) Glad to see the stuff of legend continues.

    Still the single best handle I do believe I’ve ever seen. And on a shig no less. Pure genius. (Think I stalked his ig 200 times by now for that thing).

    Would love to see some current pictures of this knife that inspired me to take on this whole new hobby. Oh and did I tell you I am quite the fan of Hello Kitty?

    Here's what it's looking like today - just cleaned up some patina and touched up the edge a bit. Not the best pictures but one of these days I'll get it into some better light

    48C16A27-8F36-4C56-8CF6-D4ACA980F413.jpeg Just got a sick new one by Dr. Ken for a big Shig. The heavyweight handle has this thing preforming 5times better IMO. Things a Sabre with mammoth musk ox horn and resin. Very impressed

    My Laseur set. Elforyn (synth ivory) and African blackwood, hand done checkering. Comfy, grippy, beautiful.

    No custom knives yet, so no pictures here. My favorite handle design so far is that on Zanmai Pro knives.

    I have to ask: What's the Swedish word for "hamono"? (If this is a thread diversion, no need to answer.)

    I only have one custom handle, so I guess it's my favorite.

    Just got my Konosuke Fujiyama B#2 back from Bart (nicestslice on IG). This is my second time working with him, and he didn’t disappoint. Macassar ebony with orange mammoth tooth spacer & streaked black buffalo horn ferrule.

    I love Delbert Ealy's handles. It feels it is built to last.

    Handle on that nakiri is gorgeous and the burl matches the dammy pattern really nicely. Who's work is it?
