    I would like to offer constructive criticism of you work, hope you do not take it the wrong way.
    When dealing with badger knots, you have to understand the knot loft and size relationship to achieve optimal functionality.
    Please make sure that glue/epoxy does not spill out of the socket and onto the knot.

    That, and high quality digital pics, show the smallest of defects, dust and finger prints, drive me crazy with shiny razors and dark scales.

    Very nice work, I like the Ligum and the Horn as well.

    I like the unknown exotic and faux ivory, reminds me of a pestle and mortar. The materials pair well together.
