I wanted to have a sabatier for a long time but their handles and the bolster were a deal breaker for me. Here is my first and very amateur sabatier conversion

23295


Also it is my first attempt of making making western handle

23291

23293


The handle and saya are made from tiger maple and brown mallee burl

23294

It has many beginners mistakes and will end up getting gifted to a friend or so , but overall it was a good learning experience . At the end I ran out of patience and called it a day , I have a gyuto project with western handle, hopefully that will turn out better

Looks great! What kind of Sab is that? Much nicer than the standard handles

Thank you , it was the reason I did this rehandle project along with giving a hidden tang western handle try . It's a Sab from evil bay , I don't see myself doing this again to put it nicely :)
