    Holy Cow!....How Cool, High Caliber Hand Crafted Hattori Chop Handles available once again at KKF.

    Hello All, Im once again offering handles for sale at KKF.

    During my time away I've had the oppertunity to make handles for Ivan and Olivia of Tosho Knife Arts.
    With their help, support and trust I've been able to improve my knife handle making skills and techniques quite tremendously.
    Ivan constantly challenged me to try things outside of my comfort zone while Olivia allowed me to handle and re-handle knives in the $1000+ range.
    I now more than ever feel the handles Im making meet the criteria to be labelled as "quality handles".
    I look forward to sharing my passion for kitchen knives and woodworking with all you great folks here at KKF.


    Sincerely
    Karl

    Welcome back Karl, look forward to seeing some of your new work. As I remember, the earlier handles were pretty nice.

    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome back.

    Welshstar, I'll be posting a photo gallery of the handles I've made. I'll fill everyone in what I intend to do and pricing soon.
