Wow, thanks for setting this up, Dave. So nice to see them on the knives, I always send them out in there little baggies, wondering what the final product will look like...

That Carter is really small. I hope it will work for you, Rick. I also like the Watanabe suji, Dave. Kelvin wanted the design like that and I was a bit skeptical at first, but it all pulls together now that it is completed. I assume the ns spacers tie it all together.

P.S. Hey, what about my knives :)

Stefan,

The Carter was just delivered by USPS, and the handle is perfect. It is larger in diameter than the handle it replaced, but that's what I was looking for. Too many smaller knives come with small, narrow handles.

Nice installation job, Dave. Thanks!

Here's 2 more freshly mounted Stefan handles for Nolan. *Note - It started to rain just as I was taking these so there's a few raindrops on the knives.

Very nice Dave - You know I couldn't resist wait to see them in person - I had to take a peek and glad I did.

Thanks for the help in matching the handles to the knives Stefan - I can't wait to see them in person.

Two stunning knives. Handles do make a difference, especially for the Carter.

The way that he used the grain of the wood in that handle really works well.

Glad you like them, guys. I think the cleaver should be nice also, I like the slightly unregular koa grain and how it goes with the more rustic handle pattern.

So, Dave, when are you doing the next ones, hurry up! :poke1: (My own knives should be coming up soon and I am just as excited as everyone else :thumbsup:).
