    Yeah, the one I had a while back had a beautiful marbled horn wasted on really sad ho wood.

    Sandpaper is cheap! Afterward rub some natural stone mud into the ho wood now and again and lightly re sand. It gives it a nice patina'd look.

    i have zero issues with the stock handle on my older gen KS but mine has MUCHO mileage on it. this is important because i've come to find that ho/magnolia handles get better with age/use. i'm guessing it's from soaking in the oils from your hands? and gets smoother from use as well.

    one thing that isnt mentioned often about is the feedback the knife offers while going through product. this is very minimal with san mai blades but mono carbon has this in spades, especially honyaki.
