Kitchen Knife Handle Upgrade

Replacing a handle can be an awesome opportunity to restore, refurbish, and breathe a whole new life into an old knife that you love.

This is also an opportunity to pick or customize your handle shape and materials ahead of a rehandle service. New handles can easily be constructed to match the old handle shape, but custom shapes are also accommodated if you would prefer, say, an octagonal Japanese style handle (wa), or a more rounded classically western handle (yo).

Rehandling is priced on a case-by-case basis based on materials. Additional work/charges will be confirmed only after consultation with you.

Indicative pricing:

  • Basic hardwoods: Start at R500
  • Stabilized Burls: Start at R1000

Sharpening is included in the price of repair (free). Major Damage corrections will be charged for separately, again only after consultation with you.
