    I have a handle from a shig 240 (best ho handle I think made). It is pretty large, so it would fit a 270 better than a 240. It was from a new unused shig that M had put a custom handle on.

    I'm with you on that one too, despite the signature. A Gangnam Style customised octagonal wa-handle would probably be something along the lines of: stabilized spalted hackberry wood with ebony spacer, dyed mammoth tooth end cap, and copper mosaic pins highlighted with rhinestones*

    I'm going to bump this thread one more time since the handle that I had hoped would work won't work for several reasons.

    Looking especially for a 240-270mm gyuto ho wood/buffalo horn handle. NOT a Shigefusa handle for the gyuto this time, because Shig gyutos apparently have very wide tangs (almost 2.5 times as wide as my Marko).

    Why don't you use epoxy?
