Konosuke's handles are like their knives, understated works of art finished to an excellent standard.
Made for Konouske by craftsman Toshiaki Umemoto of Studio Khii they are a tall octagonal handle with no taper and typically longer than most Japanese wa handles which allows for the lightweight construction and balances out a blade superbly.
The edges and ends of the handles are smooth and the heel is finished with Konosuke's mark branded into them.

Our aim is to measure and photograph our products as accurately as possible but due to many items being handmade, finished or using natural materials, there can be minor variance in measurements and things such as blade or wood finishes can vary. We will always endeavour to provide the most accurate measurements, photos and descriptions of our products.
Some measurements such as HRC are provided by manufacturers and should therefore be used as a guide.
