I decided to make a handle for my Night Reaper just to make it a little more balanced and comfortable to hand hold. It's made out of Titanium. Wondering what you guys think as far as leaving it in the raw material finish or going with black? I'm checking on finishes now. I work with aluminum but I don't think Titanium can be anodized black and I'm not sure about hardcoating either. Might go with powder coating if I decide against the raw look. It's nice in that you can reach the on/off switch with your finger while holding onto the handle. There's a few machining flaws but I'm happy with it.
Hope you like it.

Exellent machining! And you made only one??!! What a terrible mistake! I'm in for one if you consider making more.

Very nice! Have you considered something like Rhinoliner or Line-X on the hand part? The rough rubber would make it more grippy, otherwise I think I would just leave it alone, looks damn good.

Thanks. I will see if that's something I can have done locally if I decide to go that route.
