I like the shape and the finish looks good. I am relatively new to CA finishing, but I use micromesh wet sanding pads to 12,000 grit then MAAS metal polish on the CA finish and on Acrylics. It has worked good for me so far.. I recently ordered a few things from Maggards and asked over the phone about boar knots. They said they didn't currently sell a boar knot. Was that removed from another handle?
