    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....

    Here's a little 75mm Takeda NAS Kogatana AS with a custom handle I made out of desert ironwood burl sandwiching a core of 3000 yr old ancient bog oak with nickel silver pins brought to a satin finish. The handle shape is a modified butcher's handle.

    Here's another (ironwood) rehandle I just finished up on....

    This wa octagonal handle is made out of desert ironwood burl paired with black buffalo horn on both ends. The butt piece horn has a nice patch of color showing through.

    The knife is a 165mm Yoshikazu Ikeda Honyaki (oil quenched) Santoku made from Shirogami #3

    I just finished up these two rehandles.

    This customer supplied the (ironwood burl and black ash burl) wood and also supplied his ideas on the direction of grain orientation to be seen as well as size requirements - I think he did well on this, don't you? :)

    The knives are Hinoura River Jump and Shigemitsu Ito Tamahagane

    Vintage Forgecraft

    Rehandled in circassian walnut that's been made as a 3-piece sandwich construction , using G10 as the core. The style of the handle is very much like the factory original, just larger for a more full grip.

    The blade was rusted, pitted, and well used. I removed the rust (yet some pitting remains to speak for it's age), thinned the bevels, rounded the spine/choil, and refinished the blade.
