Anyone can attach wa handle! The most easiest way to attach wa handle.
We have successfully developed 3 layered wa handle.
As a tang is quite long and thin, except for Deba, it’s very difficult to make a straight hole according to the designed size even for a skilled blacksmith. During exploring other way without using drill press to make a hole, we successfully developed the handle 3 layers of materials sandwiching a tang. There’s less gap than ever.
It’s allowed to form in an exact shape and thickness of a tang, and simply sandwich between the each side. You don’t need any difficult process, can perform easily and accurately.
Some holes and stainless pins are inserted into it to fuse together for accelerating its strength, accuray and easiness.
Wa handle comes unassembled without any adhesive added.
Please simply attach to a tang with waterproof epoxy resin or a bond and perform fine adjustment if needed.
