BUTCH <> First, thank you for using Olivewood! I love simplicity, and can't wait to see it.

I think the obvious answer is do a mix of handles, but my choice would be your last option... octagonal.

Curly purpleheart is going to be my choice!! hopefully :)
I would say do the last choice, but like Melampus said, go for a mix of handles.

went with WA angled bevels as it just looked better in my eye and it will keep the blade from moving around in hand
