Very striking looking handles jegreen. Excellent craftsmanship. Love the grain on the wood. :clap: :clap:

Final results. Made 2 short handles and 2 long handles. Proportions look a bit off but prefer the longer handles barberpole type handles much more. Knot's haven't been glued in yet as I'm still playing around with which handle suits which knot.

Synthetic set at 14mm deep with 52mm loft
Silvertip set at 18mm deep with 48mm loft

Great work squire!

Silicone the knots in place for a temporary fix. Then you can test drive the knot installations before a permanent decision.
