Wa handles for 240 gyuto's <-- ALL SOLD

Tue Dec 31, 2013 6:56 pm

I have a couple of Wa handles that I was experimenting with a new finish on. (don't seem to be getting any takers on my subforum so I thought I would list them here).
These handles have the finish that I will use from now on as they turned out really great.

I am selling these at a discounted price of $65.00 each, handle only.

First up is a buckeye burl body with a synthetic horn ferrule. ( I really like using this synthetic horn as it is more solid than traditional horn)

Next is a cocobolo body with synthetic horn ferrule and butt cap:

And lastly is a dyed maple with buffalo horn ferrule:

Yes, mostly because I don't like the appearance of a large taper. These handles have 2mm of taper in width and height.

2-3mm taper is what I find most comfortable in a wa handle.

Yeah, 2 to 3mm is what I shoot for as well.

Nice handles!! :) Where do you get that faux buffalo horn?

No Chop, they are not pre slotted, only drilled with a pilot hole, but I can make a slot to an approx size if you tell me how big you need it.
