Converting a DT IDK Wa-Gyuto to Western Gyuto
I just received a ITK 270mm Wa-Gyuto and love it exept for the handle. I typically use a pinch grip which does not feel natural to me with the Japanese handle.
Is it possible to convert this to a Western handle? If so, would you do the work or would you suggest another craftsman to do this?
I am trying to get the **** 10th Anniversary Knife which you are making. If this has a Western handle and I get one, then I may simply keep the 270mm as is.
I appreciate your advise and guidance.
Best regards to all,
