Greetings everyone. This is my first post and it's a question. I've had a Konosuke HD 270 gyuto (ebony wa handle) from CKTG for ~ 2 weeks. Have used it three times, moisture has not touched the handle. The handle has begun separating from the ferrule in two places. I have digital photos but for some reason it says I don't have permission to post attachments. Do any of you have suggestions for what to do about this? It's a $296 knife. Mark at CKTG doesn't want to replace it; he wants to refund it...which will leave me without the knife I want.
