    To say that this is ‘nice’ would be a gross understatement. And thanks for the detailed description

    Very nice! Pictures can never show the depth and character of the wood that you see in person. Sometimes videos are closer but still not like the real thing in hand.

    Here's a Mizuno gyuto with a brand new handle upgraded to ironwood burl and buffalo horn. :)

    The ironwood block is soooooooo nice I can't even explain it, just real nice! The customer chose to let the wood do the talking and went with a simple black buffalo horn piece with no spacers, elegant. I really like this handle a lot.

    Here you go Salvatore....

    This is beautiful. I think I might want to have a knife or two rehandled. How much does something like this cost? Can you reuse the buffalo horn from another knife?

    Hi Jeffrey,
    The cost for rehandling can be calculated HERE

    Unfortunately buffalo horn can't be reused on one of my handles.

    Thanks for the kind words. :)

    Do you ever let people come to your shop to learn about handle making?
