Handle styles ~ Western or Asian style

My old decorative pin or “CHOP”, which I used for 20 years shown above, became so expensive during the pandemic that I either had to raise prices to cover the cost, or simplify the chop. ⇐ Shown left. So I came up with a simplified pin which is shown in the photo below and kept prices stable ⇓.
⇒AND⇐, I can now offer a very highly decorative mosaic pins or ‘chops’, which you can choose and I can have it sent to me for your knives.  ⇓
