    Holy sweetness!!!! I will trade my entire collection for those beaut's!!! Absolutely love the ebony handle/ blonde ferrule combo! I picked up a 240 HD recently (just regulation- nothing custom), and absolutely love it! Am now intrigued by the white #2....please post some long term comparisons of the steels....would be very interested.

    Not sure why they don't just use the same handles from the white#2 series...probably trying too hard to differentiate between lines. They are simple, traditional-looking octagonal handles(magnolia?) that taper towards the ferrule...they feel great and are sized perfectly.

    I must say, I have read many a complaint of the HD handle; its too small; its ugly; etc...

    I gotta say, I rather like it, as it has grown on me. The hybrid oval/ octagonal shape is super comfortable, and the size seems just right, considering how light the knives really are.

    The ebony handle with blond horn looks Sweeeet !! When I order my HD Gyuto, this is the combo that I will go for. Thanks for the initial review and updates and I look forward to seeing any videos that you could post.

    Cheers,

    Andrew
