    Looking to have my TF Nashiji 150mm petty rehandled with an appropriately sized burnt chestnut handle. I would’ve sent to Jon at JKI but he tells me they’ve closed the books on rehandles to catch up with their backlog.

    Any recommendations?

    If you find a rehandling service for somewhat-normal-not-too-fancy wa handles (burnt chestnut, shiitan rosewood, etc) I'd like to know as well

    Try contacting advertisers on Etsy. There are several who make and install Wa handles and they charge $25 install services. They might offer install on customer supplied handles.

    Did you ask Jon if he had a burnt chestnut handle of the right size that he would sell? Fujiwara does not epoxy his handles. Popping the old handle off and burning in the chestnut is fairly simple and can be done with a propane torch.

    My sharpening services are shut down, but rehandles May still be possible depending on the job... taking them on a case by case basis right now

    Resurrecting this thread to see if anyone ever found a service for something like this. I am in the market for this as well and wondering if anyone found anything.

    Jon was able to take care of me and put a very nice burnt chestnut handle on my TF. Fast turnaround as well.

    Thank you. I will reach out to him. I wasn't sure from his response whether he was still doing the service or not. Sounds like he is plenty busy these days.

    There’s a number of people on Etsy that sell and install handles.

    Shihan does rehandle work. His handles look crazy cool. Not sure if he has chestnut though.

    100%. When any of my knives need new handles I'll send them to Shihan.

    He does thinning work too...I might just send him my TF whenever I order one and let him go to town on it from top to bottom if he’s willing.

    Classy! Both the portmanteau and the handle, that is.

    That's a new word for me...had to look it up.
    You're clearly well educated and not some unschooled prook. (professional cook)
    Cheers!!
