Time to order. I have my green micarta hard user, I want this to be a real showpiece.
Too many nice woods to choose. That Stabilized Black Ash Burl on the nessmuk from the KSF Order #3 is pretty close to what I want. Other options would be some osage orange burl, or that redwood burl that you showed a while ago, or a well figured ironwood.
So, let me say:
KPH, with bolster, with the most striking wood handle you can do when you get to mine. Corby bolt, probably plain black liner and bullseye tube, whatever is complementary to the wood. No sheath.
