So I have been checking out a lot of custom folders with cool looking cnc machined and hand filed handles. Which inspired me to make the following. Please give me your unbiased feedback, negative or positive, it will all be taken constructively. Thanks!

Hattori 300mm VG10 mirror polished Yanigiba. Black 1/16th cell C-Tek scales with hand filed work, Snakewood core, Hawaiian Black Silky Oak ferrule and butt cap, G10 and nickel silver spacers.

Very nice work!

I like the ferrule and butt cap. C tek is cool looking though I've never held it.

I don't think I like the filed grooves. I understand the handle is influence by folders and you nailed it. It just doesn't catch my eye, like there's almost too much going on, detracting from the subtle patterns and inherent uniqueness of the materials being used.

Then again, I'm into the more traditional wa handle styles. Just one person's opinion.

This handle definitly blows my mind. Very cool concept.
It definitely deserves to be paired with such a fine blade.

Mind-boggling.

Just curious: I can't imagine putting that blade anywhere near a stone. Will you sharpen it?
