Heres one I just finished and will be offering here for you knife nuts!! Asking $765.00

The specs on this one are as follows.

Steel: ELMAX stainless Heat treated to a RC of 63.5
Blade: 240mm on the edge. 48.1mm at the heel. 2.1mm thick above the heel tapering to the tip.
Grind: Blade is ground convexed with distal taper.
Spine and heel have been rounded.
Handle: Beautiful Spalted Hackberry with stabilized maple bolsters. Stainless pins with single mosaic. Black and nickle spacers.

Asking $765.00

This steel is amazing stuff. Its a 3rd gen. powder metal that has very high wear resistance and toughness. With a fine grain structure. It takes a crazy sharp edge and should hold a working edge for a very long time!

Here is a link to Zknives web site where I did a comparison on Elmax next to 2 other well known performers in the kitchen. I love this site, if you have not checked it out yet take a few and give it a look. Lots of great info and photos etc. http://zknives.com/knives/steels/steelgraph.php?nm=elmax%2Ccpm154%2Caeb-l&hrn=1&gm=0


Anyone interested in this knife is welcome to message me or post here and I will contact you to exchange info.

The knife arrived yesterday and I have to say (as many others have), the pictures do not come close to doing it justice. So either Randy is a lousy photographer :justkidding:, or his work is is so good that it has to be seen in person to truly appreciate it. If you think you might want a custom knife, I can heartily recommend Randy; he is extremely easy to work with and his enthusiasm is infectious (and yes, I have a custom job on order, but have been sworn to secrecy; you'll just have to wait for it:spiteful:).

ejd53, Glad to hear that it arrived safe. After you have a chance to work with it a while I would love to get some feedback. Im interested to get your take on edge holding and sharpening, OAL cutting and whatever else is important to you. :)

until then. Have fun and stay sharp!
Happy Easter
Randy
