14" K. Sabatier carbon butcher knife conversion

Sun Aug 11, 2013 3:16 pm

Decided to take this 14" classic Sabatier butcher knife and convert it to a Wa handle.

Handle is made from materials in my scrap box. Katalox handle, M3 spacer and Maple ferrule. Polished up the blade a little too.

For reference that's a 270mm Moritaka Ishime Gyuto

Could that knife have come with an uglier handle! Nice conversion.
