    Hattori KD30 (Cowry X) Yanagiba 330mm mirror finished - consider re-handling


    A new addition to my collection, Hattori KD30 (Cowry X) Yanagiba 330mm mirror finished.
    Overall length is 480mm (18.9'), Weight is 237g.
    Blade measures 325mm (12.8') and it's 37.3mm (1.47') at the heel.
    The spine is 4.51mm at the heel and 0.91mm at the tip.

    I consider re-handling, maybe carved wood or ivory wa handle, any suggestions

    I like the current handle - simple and elegant, nice ferrule.

    Man that knife is cool. I think the curent handle looks very nice. But this knife kind of deserves a really neat Keller handle or something like that - IMHO.

    I was hoping one of us grabbed one of them. Good snag! I'd leave it as is.

    If you use that for protein, you probably won't have to sharpen it for a few years. LOL. Beautiful knife! I like the understated beauty the way it is.

    i don't think i'd rehandle it. but if i did, i'd stick with a simple wood, nothing fancy... the blade is the star, and the handle shouldn't distract from the beauty of it! just my 2 cents...
