Thread: Western to Wa Coversion - Misono Dragon Suji

    Western to Wa Coversion - Misono Dragon Suji

    Here's a conversion of a Misono Swedish Steel Western Sujihiki to a Wa handle.

    The handle and bolster have been ground off, the tang re-shaped to be hidden, the blade re-surfaced to blend in the missing bolster section (BTW - not so easy on a dragon etched knife), and a Stefan Keller handle installed.

    First up is the old busted version....

    Beautiful and tasteful (the thing already has a dragon on it - I'm glad to see restraint on the handle). It must have been a LOT of work (and cost a pretty penny), but it's worth it for the rarity!

    Looks brand new. The owner should be pretty pleased with this.

    I love the handle. If I were ever to get a custom I'd want something like that, something that has a resemblance to a traditional ho handle but is actually much fancier

    That knife looks 1000 times better. Great job on that one. That's one of the best Yo to Wa conversations I've seen.
