I have noticed how the handles have to match the look and feel of a knife. It is easy to ruin a good knife by putting on handles that just don't "work" with it.
As pretty as that bone is, it would not look right on most knives, but it really sets off that Kershaw! Looks just right.

Thanks Rev. It is true, that bone would not work on most knives. By widening the handles towards the end I was hoping to give myself a better grip and it really worked well, especially with the deep grooves between the higher ridges.
Thanks for the confirmation. ::tu::

Dale, I cannot fathom how I missed your OP on this. That is one of the most beautiful handles I've ever seen. Wonderful work!
