The black micarta is not required, I definitely like it.
A while back @dphamblades have away a couple knives, asking the winner to name several of their favorite makers in the comments, and chef-bladesmith Duy chose the winner giving me the honor of becoming the handle maker. I was sent the petty, based on the choil shot, it looks nice and thin. After collaborating with the client, he wanted “dragon tail”! Enjoy the photo, I will post more on this handle later.
