Ho wood is as boring as it gets. Some say it's all about the knife, but if you can have a nice handle too, why not. These knives look great.
this is the exact same ho wood handle ,
just just painted in chestnut ?
looks nice , like Heijis and ets handles.
i recived them yesterday have to say they look so much better in IRL, the Hankotsu will never be a natural beauty but it works, my first J-style boning knife, and they works realy well (use it in a pro kitchen). the handles are burned chestnut.
