If you are looking more custom, check out the knife and handle maker section of this forum. CKTG has some handles under their accessories section. I think they are bubinga, in addition Japanese knife imports has Ichi and burnt chestnut handles. Lots if options in pretty much any price range.

Yeah I am not in the market for custom handles, just more of a basic variety of handles to choose from. Japanese knife merchants won't sell the handles without personally installing them and I wanted to do the install myself. I will check out the CKTG ones but the keep the comments coming.

Anybody have some middle of the road handles they are looking to get rid of?

Maxim at japanesenaturalstones.com carries some nice non-custom handles ($20-$30), and you can just buy them without him having to install them. He's in Denmark, and shipping is really expensive. epicedge.com has some too, nicer and more expensive ($45+), though shipping is less.

Tim I'm thinking he is wanting some handles in decent shape that you've taken off other knives.
