That is very nice Kono and the wood handle looks sharp and clean.

Ho wood is appropriately named; It's cheap, it's soft and it doesn't last....and, it just gets dirtier the more you touch it.

Learn it, live it. ;)

Ha! I like this. Especially because, of my knives, the Ho handled one is obviously going to need the most attention and the earliest replacement, even if it still has a couple of years left in it.

My Ho's are as perfect today as they were the day I got them... everyone of them. Having zero accountability for how one maintains their handles, and claiming they [ho-wa's] don't last is absolute bullshit.

What do you mean "having zero accountability for how one maintains their handles"? Are you referring to me in the singular, or they/their in the plural community of the forum? Are you referring to the fact that I oil my handles, that I currently don't use Wa handles on raw meat because I try to avoid washing them with water and/or soap, and that all of my knives stay in dedicated knife slots without ever landing in the sink, in a drawer, or in contact with other knives? Or are you suggesting the fact that Ho wood is somehow magically as durable as other woods, basically erasing all knowledge and experience of wood as a building material and the fact that, yes, some woods are more durable, stronger, and hold up to climate changes and stress better than others? I appreciate being called out on bullshit, but I'm not exactly sure what who is the bull and what is the shit here. It's funny...even my best handles are not as good today as the day I bought them, and I've only had them for a couple of years, but I guess I'm using different criteria here...

You crack me up, Joe! :lol: And I will address both your posts, when I get the time to jump in your sandbox.

This could take on an entirely new meaning, taken out of context. :-).

Rick, where are you TDS? ;-)
