    handle

    Killer site! Could someone explain the handle upgrade to me. Can I switch from a western style to a Japanese?

    Hi chef,
    To make the conversion from western (yo) to Japanese (wa) you first grind the bolster off in front of the handle along with the handle scales and then shape the tang into a stick looking thing. Then the blade is resurfaced to blend in the area where the bolster once sat and then the new wa handle is installed and shaped. This is a much bigger project than going the reverse direction.

    Greetings from Sweden everyone. Just getting into knives after cooking a lot in past year or so, starting to get a bit tired of the limitations that bad knives give me and thus searched the net for answers. Found this site to be very helpful and decided to join. Hoping to learn much more, especially regarding sharpening with a whetstone.
