    Best Western Handles?

    The new batch of Sanetsu paring knives at JCK have some of the best handles i have seen on a knife:



    What do you think? Even at the price im kinda tempted, the only thing that's a slight let down is the vg-10 core. If it was from their zdp-189 line this would have been a dead cert. Still lovely looking knives though. Although IMO this only goes for the parers. The gyutos handles are chunkier, i prefer the slender parer handle look.

    Hmm when I clicked on this thread I was thinking that the hotel chain started making knives.

    On a serious note I like the inlay, but the end cap with the inlay seems a little much for me. One without the other would have been enough. With that I would say to blingy.

    Yeh agreed very jazzy. I think with the paring you could get away with it but it could be too much with the bigger boys? Oh dear, still tempted...

    this one liked the colors, but still to blingy, not to say his work is very good.
