Handle fit for a Calcutta TE 250DC

One of our good customers bought this gorgeous Shimano Calcutta 250DC and wanted a custom rod to match its quality. We’re doing our best to meet that high expectation. I just completed sanding the handle on the lathe, and this is what it looks like so far. This is about as fancy as we get with inlays and multiple materials. Any more fluff, and we would be missing out on some much valued R&D!
