    I bet it would sell if you threw one of your handles on it!

    Hey Lefty,
    I thought about that too, but I am just a novice handle maker and have no idea how it would hold up if a pro were to buy the knife.

    Mike, I believe any handle you make has got to be better than the standard one Murray puts on his SFGZ knives.

    I'm not quite sure, but my best guess is poplar. It's a real shame that such great blades come with such poor handles.

    You might try offering the knife with a choice of a one of your handles that are the right size for the funayuki and see if that gets any action.
