Product Description for Handle (Macassar Ebony and Buffalo Horn) -- Usuba 180mm

Maker: Misc Makers (click to see more by this maker)
Item num: 84644
Total length: 5.31 in.
Item weight: 2.24 oz.
Description: These replacement handles were meticulously formed from buffalo horn and macassar ebony wood using traditional methods. One of the benefits of traditional Japanese chef's knives is that the handle can be easily replaced. Whether a larger handle is desired or the old handle has worn out, the blade (which will often be passed down through generations) will often out live the original handle.
After the handle has been removed, it is easily replaced by packing tang hole of the new handle with a mixture of saw dusk and charcoal dust. The tang is then heated, taking care to protect the blade from heating (and therefore softening). A potato can be put on the blade edge to keep it cool. The tang is then lightly tapped into place.
