Congrats! Beautiful handle. I haven't had any of my knives custom handled yet. Will definitely be looking to Tim when I do.

WOW what a difference! I know most don't put much emphasis on the handles as the blade is what matters most, but for me I like the looks of the whole knife. It looks beautiful. Nice job.

The copper and whole handle were coated with super glue to seal up the unstabilized walnut pores and then everything was sanded down, and then several coats of Tung Oil were applied and rubbed in. This should help the copper from showing lots of aging, but it will probably show the age eventually.

Umberto, let me check to see how the handle is, drop me a PM with your address!

Yay! Found the handle and it's in good shape! It was hiding on the kitchen table...
