Thanks! I changed up a few things with these; different pins, different epoxy and I changed up my buffing setup a bit using a different wheel and compound and I'm very happy with the results! Less of the visible glue line, too.

I hate trying to get pics of the Curly Koa; there is a TON of movement in these pieces, some look dark brown at one angle, striped at another angle and then almost as light as the light maple burl at other angles! Almost need a video to see the figure.

The Sycamore Burl one is for Mark76, the rest are going to CKTG to go on the website and are available! Most of these have slightly larger (fatter) handles than the factory Artifex, so if you find the stock Artifex handle too thin, these should be just right!

I have 1 more in Koa to work on and 2 in Maple Burl, but I think I will need to make up some liners for the Maple Burl; the scales got a bit thin when I flattened them.

Sweet! I love the Koa. It's one of my favorite woods for handles.
