Add-on’s are materials added to a basic handle that adds to it’s uniqueness as well as price.

You can add spacers of different thicknesses, brass as an end cap, stainless bolsters, in numerous combinations.
You can pretty much ask for anything you want, and I will make your knife to taste.

Bolster spacers are between the brass bolsters and the wood.
I stock 2 thicknesses of bolster material – 1/8″ and .031 thick.
