Sorry if there already is one of these, but I thought we should share what our favorite handles are… wa or yo.

I love everything by Tahei. But by far my favorite in my collection is the zebrawood handle I have on my suiboku. It pairs PERFECTLY with the knife in both aesthetics and balance.

This TX gyuto:

The blade profile wasn't quite ideal for me so I eventually sold it but the handle was a perfect combo of comfort and understated good looks.

Currently, I quite like the handle on this small gyuto from A.G. Klint... nice figured piece of birch burl and simple brass bolster.
