Handle Assembling

In the case of Western style, the handle material is first secured with a jig and rivet holes are drilled. Then, rivets are driven in with an air press machine to fix the handle material to the blade tang.

Japanese style knives are prepared by burning the handle hole with a hot iron bar. While preparing the blade distortion, Tang is carefully hammered into the handle hole and glued.
