Stabilized chittum burl handle
1 in stock
Stabilized chittum burl handle is handcrafted following the high-end 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.
The handle is made with a stabilized chittum burl, silver nickel spacer, abalone resin ferrule.
This handle has a “rokkaku hanmaru” shape, with 3 facets on the upper part and the lower part is rounded.
Ideal for blades measuring between 21 and 27 cm
Shape: rokkaku hanmaru
