Are handles installed before they're shipped?

Wed Dec 12, 2012 8:01 pm

Hello I am a retired Chef and have always used European Knives. I would like to try some Japanese knives my question is do the knives come with handles or do you add them once they come in? Somehow I got the idea that you add the on at least some of them. I ask because I seem to like darker handles but the knives I seem to like have light colored yo handles.

Thanks for your time Eric

Hi Eric,

Usually they come installed on the knives but we have several woodworkers that can do custom handles on the knife if you like a knife and want to change up the handle. We also have a couple vendors where you can get different handles on the knives, Konosuke is one of the biggest examples of this.
