    It's from scrubbing the handles daily with powdered cleansers like Ajax or something similar.

    I don't really want to bump this thread but that pic is way too cool. Excellent stuff.

    I just read the other day why the Japanese handle makers use their soft Magnolia wood for the handles and the explanation on one webpage was that "it wears to the user". I guess these handles are actually very comfortable! Maybe not the bottom one but the idea of a knife slowly conforming to the users grip. Never saw proof of this concept before this picture! Awesome!

    This makes me so happy. You can really tell by the sharpening job and the whittled down handle how much he care for them.
