I've had my Toyama 300mm Suji for a little while now and while I absolutely love the blade, the handle stinks. And not in the "It's a poor handle" way. It's as a nice as ho-wood gets, but it smells like cigarettes and old man. Not pleasant at all.
I hoped after a few washes it would go away, but nope. Any tips? Or will I have to replace the handle?
Anybody else experience a similar smell on Toyama handles from Maksim?
