Thanks! I like the grippy-ness of your handle, but yearn for something with more curves to it and dressed up a bit. I bought it for the blade with no consideration of the handle :)

Josh at Bernal Cutlery can re-attach your handle, if you need help.
He can also re-handle it for you if he has a handle that you prefer in stock.
Josh can also assist you to source a custom handle. He works with Edro and a few others.
Matching Edro handle and saya would be sweet!

Noted! If I upgrade the handle at all, it will still be a wa. Possibly one of Kipp's new generation of handles. (hint, hint... :rolleyes:)

His new handles are beautiful. The one that came on this knife was perfectly utilitarian and yes, I could have just secured it back on, but the color was also paler than what shows in most of the pictures and not as nice looking in the flesh. I intend to use it as my primary gyuto, so I'll likely sell one of my other two customs.
