Dyed wood handle thoughts?

As of late I see suppliers with a variety of dyed wood handles. Personally I like the colors yet among a group of us, the artificial infusion was not accepted. The natural woods sold better for those makers.

What are your thoughts on these dyed woods?

I like pretty wood either way. I do prefer all natural most of the time as it suits my style of knives more often. I do use "infused" and stained for kitchen blades. Not a big fan of most "plastisized"materials though.

Have been seeing the various blocks and slabs from @xoticblanks on IG. The color combinations combined with Damascus are pretty eye catching. I'm conservative though appreciate the visual appeal they have.
