    I'm betting that the individual offering this to you is incorrect re. Handle material since it looks an awful lot like cocobolo.

    It's on eBay and it's for 80 dollars and from china so just making sure all of those just don't seem right

    Or

    It's auction starting at 40 dollars us

    So I thought that it sounded fishy. I don't think I'll risk it
