Product description

The Wa-Handle is a traditional Japanese handle commonly used for Japanese-style knives. These handles are known for their lighter overall feel and blade-forward balance, which can enhance the maneuverability and control of the knife. Wa-Handles are available in various types of wood with different collar designs, allowing for personalization and aesthetic preferences.

Typically, the tang (the part of the blade that extends into the handle) of a Wa-Handle is around 3/4 the length of the handle and is securely glued in place. Taking care of a Wa-Handle is relatively simple. If you notice the handle becoming dry, applying beeswax or mineral oil can help maintain its condition. Professional cooks may find that the natural oils from their hands provide sufficient moisture for the handle, especially considering the extended periods of time they hold the knife during their work. In case a Wa-Handle gets damaged, it is relatively easy to replace, so there is no need for significant concern.

The custom handles you mentioned are handmade and crafted from exotic woods. They are designed to fit larger knives like the gyuto (chef's knife) with a blade length of 240mm or more. The set includes three different handles, providing options for customization and personalization.
