Japanese handle - Tottori Sand [octagon]
New SharpEdge stabwood handles in brown color. ⌛️
Traditional Japanese handle with a brownish twist, resembling the largest sand dunes in Japan - Tottori. Hence the name Tottori Sand!
We choose a universal, octagonal shape that comfortably fits the hands of both right- and left-hand users. It offers a firm grip for easy and comfortable use of the knife and makes even the most difficult tasks a breeze. The weight of the handle is suited to Japanese blades, so the knife will be evenly balanced.
Handles are made of natural maple wood harvested in North China, Russia and the USA. It undergoes a special procedure of stabilization with resin, which ensures a very long service life of the handle. During this process of stabilization, a color pigment is added and is then absorbed in the wood fibers. After the final treatment and polishing, the handle reveals the grain of the wood. For the handles, blocks of maple burl with irregular and non-uniform structure are used, thus the dyes penetrate the wood in different ways, creating unique patterns. This makes every handle one-of-a-kind.
The colors and patterns of handles may vary from what is seen in the pictures. If you like a particular color hue, please contact us before placing an order.
