Homemade handles

Post by Bkillam » Tue May 07, 2019 7:43 pm

I made some more handles. Combinations of rosewood, ebony, walnut with a spalted tamarind base.

Do you sell any of those or just make for yourself?

Every time I see a spalted tamarind handle I just want one for myself! Beautiful stuff!

So far, these are for presents, but I wouldn’t mind selling one (or more).

The wood I use varies in price and I don't buy bulk, but I could probably let almost any handle go for $45. That mostly material and just enough extra for me to feel like I'm actually selling them and not giving them away.

Here's my newest one. The colors look off in these pictures. I'm not sure why. The tamarind is the same color as the others.

BTW, I do have a number of this style. And I'm happy to sell them for $25 a piece. Here are some other pictures that show the color better.
