Ben's custom knife handles

Sexy

Does he buy the blades and then swap out the handles?

Ever since Shun discontinued their left handed Classic line I've been thinking about some custom handles for my knives

To date, I buy blades from chefknivestogo and rehandle them.  I have a few nakiri and petty blanks cut out in the shop and need to carve out time to work on them.   

 

What knives are you thinking of?  I have been focusing on hidden tang ambidextrous tapered octagonal handles.

Standard stuff

Need an 8inch chefs knife plus a couple others

Already have a 10in Shun classic that is balanced for a left hander and I love it
Had planned to fill a whole block with left handed classics but they discontinued them before I could get around to it

I've had this one for years and would love to get it rehandled. The bone ferrule keeps slipping off no matter what I do. 72022535785b4f98bdea8e139d990f52.jpg2cd240ac4e58e026d01386261e854316.jpg
