I was searching the CKTG site and I was not able to find an inexpensive ho wood wa replacement handle, only art handles.

I am looking for a cheap as shit replacement wa handle for a cheap knife. Did I miss it on the site or any other ideas short of making one myself? I just don't have the time.

thanks,
Danny

You asked for "a cheap as shit replacement wa handle for a cheap knife" that sounds like a do it yourself project to me.

It could be a DIY project, but I really don't feel like shaping it. I was hoping Mark had some cheap blanks ready to go.

Lots of people keep old handles that they removed when they put better ones on. If you make it clear that you'd accept a used handle that someone removed or knocked off of another knife, you might get some people willing to share for very cheap. You may also consider changing your heading and posting in the classified section as "wanted" if this sounds like a good idea.

I'm pretty sure if you put out a WTB post you will get some good offers.

I bought a 240 Itinomonn StainLess Kasumi Gyuto from Maksim a few months ago. Took 3 days from Denmark to CA.
