I mentioned in earlier threads that I had ground the whole batch of 225mm gyutos too thin (12 blades), so I am thinking of converting those into 180 or 190mm gyutos and offer them as ready-made.

I set up a form on my site where you guys could sign up and select handle material and lengh.

These are slightly discounted, 180mm - $300, 190mm - $315.
There are 12 knives total, all in 52100.
Same warranty as on my other knives, plus 7 days return for a full refund.

Thanks,

M

Nice size for daily use. I'm still all tickly feeling knowing my 240 is coming.

I have enough height at the machi of the 225mm blanks to consider Western handles. Construction would be similar to my D (metal tip, ferrule/no ferrule, handle material, contrasting end cap). Western handle is long overdue, so I might as well start moving in that direction now.

I will limit Western handles to 4 knives out of 12, as I will have to spend more time on these as my D (learning curve). Plus if I do contrasting endcaps, that adds another layer of complexity. First-come-first-serve basis. If you submitted your order and want to change your preferences, send me an email (don't have much space in my KKF inbox) to anvlts@gmail.com.

Marko, sorry but my wife just informed me that our deck is going to be replaced and the money for the knives will be going toward that. I will have to reluctantly cancel my order if I want a place to sleep for the next few weeks. :(

No problem, Ed -
Done.

Thanks for those who signed up. I need to rework these knives and put them up for sale, as each has consderable time and effort in them, and by reworking the, I can recover some of the resources invested.

I don't know why, I freed some space in my mailbox but kept getting notifications that it is full.

Send me an email to anvlts@gmail.com.

So tempting! It's going to be hard going through 6 months not buying any knives when opportunities like this pops up. I might have to block this site altogether. Great to see you're at it again after the vacation, Marko!

All 12 knives are bespoken. I will do them parallel to 225mm and honesuki project, so it might be a little while before I complete them, so no payment until they are finished.

Thank you,

M

Unfortunately, I only had twelve blanks, and they are all bespoken.

Sorry guys, I will take your names and the next time I ran any ready-made knives, I will make sure to include you.

It works, though the list for 180-190mm has been closed, as I only have a few knives that I offered. This project is on hold at the moment, as I am trying to come up with western handle version, but will work on it very soon.

Marko,

Could you put up a pic of a finished 190mm? Sure would love a pic of one I can't find one, thanks ahead of time.

I haven't made the 190mm yet. The closest would be 180mm.

They are in the pipeline of projects that I plan on doing. Though not paid for, all have been spoken for.

I will probably end up producing them at a rate of 1-2 a week, once I get the blanks heat treated.
