I'm still working on this one, may need to slim down the ferrule a tad, but this will give you guys an idea of what it looks like!! I had to take the pics inside since it started to downpour outside :( Handle hasn't been epoxied to the blade or anything, just shaped and polished to see how it looks/feels in the hand and on the board.

Got some better pics today!

To compare to the Western Handle 210mm Artifex. I left the handle a little longer, not sure if I will trim it or not?

No oil, just 12000 grit Micro mesh, yes 12,000!!

Nope, they are completely oval to be ambidexterous! I left is bigger than some of the other Wa handles since I have bigger hands and many Wa handles I find are too small. IF the buyer finds the handle is too big for them, I will slim it down for them, no charge!
