The #97 is made of oak. It has six faces that fit nicely in the hand and taper off to circles on the top and bottom. Pictured below is a dry fit Sunrise synthetic. Final knot to be determined.
Update: I ordered a Virginia Sheng two-band badger for this handle. It is a great match. I set the knot on August 25.
