here are the latest. the handles are padauk, turned on the south bend lathe I inherited from my grandfather. they are finished by impregnating with polyurethane by immersing in poly varnish first subject to vacuum for a couple of hours, then pressure overnight. over that will be probably three coats of the same poly, rubbed out between coats.

the knot is black badger, 20mm x (according to the vendor 60mm) I measured about 57mm.

Very nice looking handles, Bridger. Are you going to try setting the loft any lower?

Great work sir, I especially like the barrel design. Also, with the handles upside down to dry, the handle on the far right would make an excellent brush with the opposite end of the handle drilled for the knot. Perhaps a bit of inspiration for you next project.

these knots have plenty of backbone. no need to waste any of the loft they came with.

to my hand having the bulb part of the handle toward the palm of my hand feels more right. but I can turn whatever the customer wants, I guess.
