Not for me. At any "reasonable" price, I'd pass on any knife with that handle. Not even sure I would buy at a "given away" price.

What is handle made from? Layered hard wood or plywood. Either way I would want to hold it first. Not likely to try blind over internet, because of the ..............different factor.

Great thanks!

I'm going to do more of this with you guys. I didn't care for it either but I know I'm not the arbiter of taste.

My sentiments exactly. Aside from the strange looks, I'm wondering how it would have felt in pinch grip.

It looks like a two-purpose built western style handle, designed with the intent to accommodate both regular grip and pinch grip.

Can't always judge a book by the cover.
