What type of finish do you apply? I mix two different stains (Minwax red mahogany & gunstock) to Watco Danish oil and soak the handle in it until it reaches the desired effect, which is more of a tint than applying straight stain. You can also use leather dye in the color that suits you, and then apply your finish, if you're after something more darkly dramatic.

Experiment with a smooth sanded scrap before going for broke with the handle. RC
