    Marko - Are a lot of people going with the D handle vs the traditional wa?

    No, but I am trying to change it, as I think in some ways,D style is a better handle.

    Funny, I always thought the D-handle was traditional. Go figure.

    D is a variation of an oval handle and an oval is derived from octagonal, so in that sense, all of them are traditional.

    Japanese swords handles are oval or octagonal if you want to make a link between those and the present-day kitchen knives handles.

    Yeah - What he said

    I was more curious about what percentage of people were going with wa vs. D. Seems like a lot of people favor the wa. I'm still trying to figure out if I like the D before I have the new toy regripped. I've been on the road for two weeks and haven't had any time to play with it yet though.

    My current knives are western handled. Recently was sent some wa handles to test drive. My custom will be wa.

    Both octagonal and D style are wa hanldes.

    @DeepCSweede -
    I think you mean octagonal when you say wa, or that is what I have been interpreting as.

    For me look of a knife is just as important as performance, though I am probably in minority.
