Yaki Sugi

Continue Shopping or Checkout

  • Yaki Sugi is a process of roasting the wood on knife handles to create a darker and more water-resistant finish (but not waterproof), often with better grip.  This service can be offered on ho wood, ichii, and cherry Japanese style handles and creates a look and finish similar to the burnt chestnut handles featured on some knives we carry.  We can not provide this service for western style handles, ebony handles, pakkawood handles, or burnt chestnut handles.

    *Products with this add-on are not eligible for returns under any circumstances... all sales are final.

    • Handle Types: Ho, Ichii, or Cherry Japanese style handles
    • Handle sizes will vary
