DESOL <> I have to agree with you there. Not quite that heavy ass dyed ebony junk they had on it before; I'm so glad they upgraded. ;)

Classic and clean looking. The Ho wood handle makes for a lighter weight and slighty less expensive Fujiyama. I have two 240 Fujiyama gyutos in white + blue steel, one has the standard ebony handle and the other has a lighter Tim Johnson custom handle and the lighter handle version is slighty blade heavy(as it should be IMO). The ebony handle sample balances at the handle/tang. A cherry wood handle would work great on this knife also!

As much as I'm excited to see this, I have to say that I like the balance and feel of my ebony Fujiyama Funayuki very much. And I say that after debating for months over rehandling my ebony HD, and after buying a handleless Fujiyama (well, it was handled by Mark) and returning it.

So, I'll be the one here to say variety is great, but I do hope they continue to offer some of the ebony handles, even after recommending this knife to someone above specifically because of the handle change. I think it is absolutely on purpose that the balance with ebony is precisely in front of the choil with an extra-long handle, as it gives the blade a very nimble feel in the hand, but also shifts the weight of the blade forward when chopping...again, probably because the extra length of the handle affects the way the balance point (fulcrum) shifts as weight or energy is applied to one side or the other. I like the feel very much. I'd be interested in the Ho version, too, but it is hard to imagine how such a light handle would affect such an otherwise well-balanced blade. Either way, I'm pleased with the ebony, and I'm pleased to see yet another option...a little surprised it is Ho, though, and not something at least a little bit heavier...

That looks so much better than the Ebony handles. I can only imagine how much better they feel.

Looks like a ho wood handle. Clean functional look. Doesn't wanna make me get rid of my Ebony/Buffalo horn handle however.
