We are constantly fiddling with handles and, due to the wonders of mother nature, every handle is different. We have no control of the wood but we do our best to take photos of what it "kinda" looks like.

If you're not happy with the look send it back and we will refund or replace. We can also send pics before purchase if you wish for the actual knife we are about to pack for you (email us if you want a pic - ramon@koiknives.com OR shannon@koiknives.com)
