I'm a fan of the angle at the end of handle #2. Nice work!

That looks like a Hammered Goko 240mm :)

Nice job Lunatic! I like the laminated Wa handle for the petty! As you found out, sometimes the handles get a little smaller than intended and don't match up with the Machi; a belt sander can grind the machi down a bit; I do that on some knives with a very tall Machi area.

Looking good here, you seem to be on the right track to making awesome custom handles.
