Ebony-Tasmanian blackwood-yellowcedar handle
Out of stock
Ebony-black Tasmanian wood-yellow cedar handle is handcrafted following the premium Japanese handle style.
According to Japanese culture, the handle is considered a consumable, so it can be replaced. Due to this, manufacturers don’t give much importance to the handle. Particularly for this we find blades which are true masterpieces associated with a low quality handle.
I think that nothing beats a pretty handle made with top quality materials, to enhance and accompany a Japanese blade.
My handles are made with a mainly octagonal shape, a shape used to distinguish the high-end handle in Japan. We like this shape because it enhances the beauty of the materials used and is also very ergonomic and comfortable to use. Other shapes are possible to order.
To create this handle we assembled several pieces of wood.
The materials used to create this handle are ebony and Tasmanian blackwood, used alternately, then the ferrule and bottom cap are made with a yellow cedar burl.
Ideal for blades measuring between 21 and 27 cm
