    I've noticed that Wustoff makes some of the worst quality handles. I've rehandled 5 of them now for guys at work. The scales crack off near the bolster or butt. I'm sure it has nothing to do with them going through the dishwasher! Idiots!

    This is the first time I've done one this style. The wood is Bocote. Pretty.
    Yes did it for free too.

    That's really nice. Is this one of those with a curved transition from tang to bolster? I can't quite tell from the pictures.

    I just sharpened up a Wustie at home for a Stage and man are they not really that good of knives anymore...the profile leaves a lot to be desired I don't get it and honestly it did not get as sharp as my 40 Victorinox knife receiving the same progression
