Ok, I thought I would share a few pictures of my Goko Damascus 210 that Tim Johnson (Taz575) rehandled for me. I know all the senior members on this forum are familiar with Tim and his work, but for any of the new guys that are looking for a possible rehandle, I can tell you Tim's work and attention to detail are outstanding and his communication is very good also.

Here is a few pics. Curly walnut/copper spacer/curly Maple ferrule

Is the new handle wider than the original? I kind of like the dark handle . But that's a nice handle for sure.

If you hold them next to each other there the same size. Only the new one is much much nicer.

Did it shift the balance point closer to the handle?

Beautiful work as always Tim.

Another beautiful handle by Tim. Consistently high quality work! And a nice guy to work with too!

Maybe a little, definitely not a lot. It balances about 1 finger width onto the blade, right around the pinch grip.

I could use the old handle for my Tanaka if you still have it...Any chance that could happen? I'd love to recycle...Personally I like the look of the stock Goko...

Hopefully the copper will take a nice green patina. Or is it clear coated?

Umberto, I didn't get it back with my handle. It may have been destroyed in the removal, the platic ferrule seemed really cheap, but I'm not sure. If Tim still has it and if he's willing to send it to you, it's all yours.


Cheers, Hutch
