Anyone have a spare octagonal handle?
Hi folks- I recently purchased a 150mm Tanaka petty from Metal Master in Japan that came with a D-shaped ho wood handle/buffalo horn ferrule. I thought I'd give the handle a try, but I think D-handles are not for me (I'm a lefty, but it doesn't even feel right when I hold it in my right). Anybody got an octagonal handle they might like to trade? This one is 119mm long and tapered. I've put a couple of coats of mineral oil on it, but otherwise it is as new.
Here's a stock photo:
p.s. I think I actually LIKE ho wood, just not so much D-shaped-ness...
