I was able to pick up three custom Triad handles recently. I asked Toby to create a SS, Bronze Aluminum and Copper with Aristocrat knurling. The SS and Bronze are 85mm x 13mm and the Copper is 80mm x 13mm.

I couldn't be happier with the work- truly heirloom quality!

I really love the look of these handles. Di you have a link to Triads website. Tried to find them but no joy.

They are truly fantastic. I got an Aristocrat in titanium from Toby recently for my Wolfman. Matches my brushed head perfectly and even fits in my Wolfman stand. Absolutely stunning and the grippiest handle I own! Got mine 14.4mm x 101.6mm.

@rogue13 Toby [Triad] basically turns them as a hobby but has had so much recent demand and interest that he is not taking any requests for custom work currently.

He will turn handles and post them as available online but does not have a website and they go really fast.

A great pleasure to use and I agree with drivenlegend : extraordinary craftsmanship and when he begins taking custom orders again I would definitely and wholeheartedly recommend jumping on one!

kwsher If Toby isn't taking orders, and doesn't have a website- How does he sell his handles?

I believe he has a thread on TSN.

All evidence has been buried, all tapes have been erased.

Hey Gareth, apologies for tardy response. Bruce is correct, there is a Triad thread on another forum that is the nexus for his work and requests although he has shut down net new requests for the time being.

I will drop him a note Andrew.

In the meantime, here's my copper handle with a Black Mamba head. Great feel!
