Got myself a B7 handle in spalted maple (I think). Now, I need to wait a few more days and stick a knot inside.

The real question becomes.... Silvertip or 2 band?

Lee! You had be really excited, then let me down hard. Beautiful handle though! I thought this thread was going to be about something completely different.

What a gorgeous handle Lee, it looks magnificent. I vote for a dense three band silvertip! You can't go wrong with a nice two band knot either though. It's a win win.

You going with your own knots, or TGN? Cause their current Finests are incredible.

Hello Lee, for what it's worth. I would go for WSP both 2 band but set the loft 3 / 4mm in each handle different height. It will change the whole character & pleasure & compliment both these two beautiful handles.

Keep us all informed what you decided on !!! and of course Photograph's.

It's actually the same handle. I just didn't get the lighting quite right in the second shot. Which translates to: I was lazy with photoshop. Blush

Looks like the majority wants a two band knot so far. And the one dissenting vote was equivocal anyway. Tongue

If we're voting I'll go with the 3 band silvertip.

I'm leaning towards the Super Silvertip just because it's likely to be the last I see for quite some time. However, the 2 band looks pretty good. Admittedly since the black band of the super silvertip is so long, it kind of looks like 2 band hair sunk so deep into the handle. I'll probably put some spacers inside to bump it. Guess I'll be buying washers on Black Friday.

What do you guys think?

Lee , what knots are those? Is it what I think is is ( a super "rare" badger hair)?
