Love the striped look Ted.
Any plans down the road for any other colors
other than the basic Red/Silver/Green/Blue?
I understand production on anything outside of basic is costly if it sits.
Are the handles more practical to produce in limited quantities? I would assume so over the cost of anodizing.

 Each assembly is fairly labor intensive. I can't visualize any sort of mass production anytime soon.

 Got a giggle when you describe colored foam knobs as basic  Grin  Grin.....perhaps someday colored foam knobs will become basic every day item, but until then this knob is it.

 Eva or foam, the cost difference is very minimal. The dominant grips on all future knobs will be the red, black, and blue foam. It's much better material than eva

Sorry I only meant basic as in popular colors. What your making is not basic.

Ted,
 I must ask😁....I was also using "EVA" , and "foam" as the same meaning....I guess I may have misunderstood!!!
Point being, I like whatever your grips are made from....they are the bomb!

Ted,
Glad to see everything back up and running! (Iíve been swamped at work, so havenít posted much).

Do you have a rough schedule in your head for different batches?
Looking for a Blue blade, and itís definitely worth the wait.

Here is my example of Ted's fantastic work. This handle is amazingly constructed and light as a feather and looks very cool as well. Ted when you get in the stock on the blue I will take a blue just like this to match my Cortez jigmaster. Thanks again for a fantastic handle
