    The acrylic is super easy to work with. Some are stronger than others but all easy to shape and they can be polished on the buffing wheel after 220grit to the point where there are no lines or scratches in them. I can fully shape a handle in 20min. And they are water proof which is a bonus. But that being said I prefer to use wood for handles and only typically use acrylics upon the customers request. Give it a try it is nice to work with and reasonably cheap in price.
