    Wa Handle Set

    I just finished this job up, and what a job it was. I was tasked to fix any wrongs with the blades which meant hand sanding many of them, then sharpen, and finally to rehandle them all!

    The handles were to match, the configuration selected by the customer. He went with exhibition grade koa and black buffalo horn with no spacers, classy.

    The koa was a chore to acquire in this premium level and quantity but in the end we got it all from one single slab & had it stabilized.. The customer spared no expense on the wood and trust me it shows.

    I was asked to make handles that fit the knives, no broomsticks allowed. Each handle was cut, drilled, and shaped specifically to each individual knife. A slower process than doing batch work but again the results say it was worth it. These handles actually came out so nice that I'm surprised that I did them.

    The customer's got himself quite a collection, doesn't he? I hope that his new handles suit him well and thank him for the opportunity to work on such a large project.

    Thanks guys


    The bulk of these knives are Watanabe, with a couple of Gesshin Ginga, and a couple of unknowns.
