I came up with this handle yesterday. I'd like to play around with this style for a while. I'll have to wait until payday. I need more turning stock. 22mm handle.

Nice. I really like those type of handles. I think it would look good with the materials switched round too.

That profile looks like it would fit the hand perfectly. Myself, I like the contrast of the two tone amber and black. I find it more visually interesting.

I'm with Captain about the contrast of the two tone amber and black.

It reminds me of the classic Fuller Brush butterscotch / black.

The shape of the brush too, touches on the classics also. Overall, it will make for a lovely brush.

Great looking handle I love the old school two tone look.

Is the amber material cellulose acetate? I had tried to make a handle once with that stuff and it fell apart on me when I was drilling it. But that was without a lathe and the end of my handle making attempts.

Can this be ordered cut for a custom knot and depth request? That is gorgeous.

I was thinking blue with a red stripe like the dress blues uniform pants. Red and gold would be a good combo too.
