In pretty desperate need of advice (I think..)
I have two Takeda's. Both of which, I noticed tonight with despair, have water in their handles. I can see it through the epoxy, and the tang flexes a touch in the handle. They are around a year old but I'm fairly certain the moisture has only gotten in over the past 2-3 days.
So, question is, how long will the tang last before it's irreparable? also.. whats the deal with water in the handle anyway, pretty disappointed as I thought thats what the epoxy was for.. I'm a pro chef and can't afford to part with them currently so the situation is tricky. Time for a rehandle? But I need replacements before I send them. I was thinking of grabbing a cheap vitorinox and then sending them for rehandling.
Thoughts/suggestions and advice?
If a handle replacement is imminent, recommendations?
