Interesting stuff, that cork handle ... looks like particle board.

I'm not saying I don't like it ... just looks different.

Little higher quality than particle board lol wink.png It's called smokey burl, I've been using it for a good year now or so on a number of builds. One of my favorite corks to use.

I've noticed it ... just now commenting on it.  I like the patterning in it ... just too light (color, not weight).  Needs some "dark" in it.
