Beautiful woods! I'd love to have a shiny custom wood carved or turned handle. Maybe even painted. This is overboard but wood trimmed in aluminum, nickel, anything. Maybe set a couple diamonds, lol!!! Who doesn't want the setup with a 14k gold trimmed brazilian cherry handle? That would be so cool...
