    WTB: Ho-wood/Buffalo handles

    I'm sure that some of you have had your knives rehandled or have rehandled them yourselves and have an extra handle lying around. I have a Marko knife that needs a handle and will likely have a few more, so I'm putting this out here to see if anyone has some extra ho-wood handles from when they got their knives rehandled. I just prefer the aesthetic of the plain ho wood/buffalo horn. I need handles for a 240-270 gyuto, 180 petty, and 210 gyuto. If anyone has any of those (especially the big gyuto handle), please contact me. I'd be happy to pay for the handle. Please help the Marko knives get some shoes so that I can put them to use.

    I have the crap one Carter puts on his SFGZ line. It came off a funayuki that is about 170ish. It might work....

    LOL thanks Lefty. I might take you up on that if nothing else turns up. Nobody has extra D handles laying around here?

    I usually destroy them getting them off. I found it too much effort to try to keep them intact. Next one I get I will see if I can salvage it, but it may be a bit. I thought Jon mentioned he was going to have them, but I am not sure of the conditions of getting them, possibly has to be his knives.

    Epicurean Edge sells some. Weirdly they don't have a ho wood / buffalo horn in the 240mm size.

    Jon does have handles, but I'm actually looking first for D-Handles and I'm too impatient to wait a month. Also, I figure it'll be cheaper (except for the fact that I'll probably mess up and still end up paying Jon to fix it, as always lol).

    Have also been considering contacting EE, but we'll see. I think that a 210 Usuba handle is right for a 270ish gyuto IIRC, but they don't even have that.

    I think I kept the D handle from my Masamoto KS 240mm, which is (was) Ho with blonde (white) horn.

    I'll take a look (may not be home until tomorrow morning). It's yours if I still have it.

    Thank you!

    Fingers crossed

    I have a handle from a shig nakiri that Mike Henry re-handled. If you're interested I'll take measurements and you can have it for postage.
