I make my knives with several free handle style options : Western or Asian
Below: new style without 1/8″ brass pins, but with the company chop.
Same bonding strength between the steel and the wood handle,
but with a new look that accentuates the wood.
If you want rivet pins, just ask.
Below: Handle has stabilized Redwood, with double bolster spacers, brass bolsters
with a 2″ x 8″ carbon steel Santoku.
