The Mikey handles really do it for me
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.
Its a classic. The stuff of legends
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

There you go Pretty in Pink. Total BADASS
This one is so sick I’d be afraid to use it
I made both of these, therefore, my favorites
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
Time for a new knife roll. I know a guy....
I purposely did that to fit bigger longer stuff. I might be down though. Thanks
My Laseur set. Elforyn (synth ivory) and African blackwood, hand done checkering. Comfy, grippy, beautiful.
Does anyone hear the Imperial March playing in the background? Standard issue imperial storm trooper cutlery
So beautiful, elegant, minimalist
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.)
Tony's knives are sooooooooo impressive!
I only have one custom handle, so I guess it's my favorite.
Hamono~ edged tool/cutlery
Edged tool = eggverktyg
Cutlery = bestick
Cutler =knivsmed (knife-smith)
Ironwood handle and a hand sanding for an 8" Zwilling twin chef's knife
This handle is so cool!
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.
These two are amongst the nicest for me.
Special handles for special blades. Makes total sense to me.
Which nakiri is that, Carlos?
Handle on that nakiri is gorgeous and the burl matches the dammy pattern really nicely. Who's work is it?
