London Pattern handles available

About 15-20 years ago I had an opportunity to purchase a large quantity of CITES compliant Brazilian Rosewood sticks. These were off-cuts generated from sawing guitar parts for C.F. Martin in 1966. I was never quite sure what I would do with them... but always thought they would make wonderful tool handles. I made a prototype handle a year or so ago, and was so pleased with it, I decided it might be worth doing a small run of handles. There were 20 sets of 3 made, and they sold very quickly (I used 20" sticks which yielded 3 handles).

I made arrangements to export another larger batch of sticks to the States to do another run. They done... just waiting for the finish to dry.

There is a 1/8" pilot hole for the tang of a chisel or file. The handles are just under 1"... so ideally suited for smaller files and chisels.  

These are only available in the States... as per the CITES export permit. They are $139.00 USD + $10 flat rate shipping anywhere in the US. Send me an email if you are interested;
