Japanese handle - Kyoto Sunset [octagon]
New SharpEdge stabwood handles in orange. 🔥🌞
Traditional Japanese handle with a modern twist in an orange color named Kyoto Sunset. It feels like holding something smooth and warm in your hand – a glow in the sky at sunset or a burst of bright autumn colors.
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 fibres. 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.
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.

Excellent knive and excellent service from the guys. All wrapped in a japanease newspaper that give a touch of authenticity. Bought a beautifull hokiyama santoku in ginsanko. Knife arrived rasor sharp.
Another beautiful Knife, delivered super fast and the Okinawa Reef handle really adds to the quality look and feel.
Perfect for those smaller more delicate cutting/slicing jobs.
Once again super fast delivery to New Zealand, (under a week over the Xmas period).
This 6.5" knife with the Tokyo Night handle is very impressive looking. It is very sharp and has a top quality solid build.
Fantastic for vegetables etc, looking forward to many years of use.
This was a gift for my son so I haven't used the knife. However I have inspected it and (as are the other knives I have purchased at SharpEdge) it is beautifully made and the look and feel are cannot be faulted. The level of service and delivery has always been great from these guys.
Excellent service, very fast delivery, beautiful products.
Fast delivery, excellent knives and professional staff
The knife came as advertised in just a few days from our order. Not only is it pretty and very very sharp but it weighs just a few ounces. We might not be cutting a lot of prosciutto with it, but it will find its way to other uses. We love it! Enjoyed doing business with you.
i have ordered several knives from the ZDP-189 series. i was super satisfied with the supoort.
I can recommend this shop to others.
As usual, service has been top and knives are outstanding.
If you are looking for an excellent Japanese knife I highly recommend sharpedge.
