I've decided I don't really like a 'bamboo' style handle as much as I like ones that have some texture such as knurling.

If you followed   THIS THREAD  you saw how it was made.

It is a titanium handle which began as a titanium kubaton.  I did the machining myself and the handle came out really nice ... I just don't like a bamboo style as much as I thought I would

14 mm dia (.551")
44.49 grams
96.9 mm length (3.81")

Hard to price this one ... the materials (kubaton) and tooling cost me roughly $34.00.  I will sell it for $30.00 (free shipping in the USA) - No international sales please.

It seems like a fair price, considering the $34 you have into in in costs, plus your skilled labor.  GLWTS. 

Is your shop set up to do knurling?

I can knurl, but the one think I want most, is the one thing I can't do.  I can't make those slow spiral grooves like the aristocrat style ... I like those styles, but that's not really a knurl, but more of a cut pattern.
I can thread down to 4 threads per inch ..but those spirals is more like 1 full turn in an inch or even 1 turn in 2 inches.  It's more like the spiral of the rifling in a gun barrel ... and most manual lathes just don't turn that loose of a spiral.
