    Disaster!

    Well. There goes some beautiful buckeye burl. Lesson learned. This was my first attempt at a D handle and I was doing the handle a little out of my usual order. I rough shaped the handle and then tried to install the dowel. Didn't work very well apparently.

    I'll see if I can salvage the lower portion for a petty ferrule or something.

    It is a shame. This was a very beautiful piece of wood.

    I can feel your pain and was in the same boat just few weeks ago. Really nice burl

    Misono 270 suji wa-conversion

    I Wa-converted this Misono 270mm sujihiki. Now it is a 300mm wa-suji.

    Buckeye burl for the handle with brass spacers.

    This is a more "normal" sized handle. 19mmHx18mmW at the ferrule and 25mmHx20mmW at the butt and 137mm long.

    Once again I apologize for the pictures. I need a better camera.

    Looks awesome! I think I might have to get buckeye for one of my handles.

    Very nice! The last pic is really good, I think your biggest problem is getting the lighting correct and a better background.

    Looks awesome if you ask me. The previous handles were a bit too fat for my liking but this one is just right. Nice job
