A true point and go "laser" grind combined with a fast profile. Plus cryo treated O1 @ Rc60-61 is tough yet easy to sharpen, you have the best of everything here.
The wa octagonal handle is made from spalted maple with black buffalo horn on both ends. The spalti-ness of this handle is very apparent with strong black lines and surface imperfections. I was going to fill in all the spalty bits with adhesives but instead opted to leave them in place for some character. I figured that anyone enjoying this type of wood, and how it's formed, will likely appreciate these attributes. After seeing the handle finished I'm glad that I chose this direction. *Please see close up pictures for details.
Do not worry about stability/longevity of this handle as the wood is stabilized AND sealed with a varnish/oil finish.
