I've had multiple questions about getting a run of "Mini-Gyutos" made by Butch. It would be a smaller order, but I'd be up for it if we can get some real interest. I'm thinking 6.5-7", with a heel height of approximately 45mm. Butch and I were thinking about doing these (or at least tossed the idea around), and today alone, I got three emails asking if it might be possible.

Long story short: it is very possible. What steel (as in stainless or carbon) would you prefer? What length might be best? I use mine all the time and it is 170mm, in carbon. Here's a pic of what we're talking about here. It is the template, as it were. :D

Please let me know if we're onto something, and thanks to Chuck for making me really get on Butch.

That would be a cool knife. Maybe a semi-stainless tool steel?

I think the 170mm would be a good length.

Nice looking knife. Too bad my knife budget for this year is used up . . .

Someone is gonna have to go over this budget thing for me. I don't think I'm getting it yet. :scratchhead:

Speaking of budget, roughly what do you expect these to go for?

Tom, Whats with the rubber band on the handle. I think i've see you do that to another knife? Is is a slippage thing?

CTS-XHP probably. Looks nice. I kind of doubt I can play this time (still waiting on a funayuki-ish super petty from him), but I'll watch with interest.

Butch and I are in talks. :) Tentatively, how many would be interested?

XooMG

I'm interested but it's complicated. :scratchhead: Haven't had good communication with Butch the last few weeks...would consider derailing my current, tentative plans, but don't know how to work that out.

Chuckles

Pretty please.

Yes please. In stainless.

Put my name down... Butch's XHP or CPM-154, or if there going to be carbon, W2.

I would love one in XHP. What is the price on these? I seem to have missed it.

Lefty
01-20-2014, 11:13 PM
Wow, this has taken off! Butch and I talk a few times a week, so I'll keep on him about these. I'd love to do 5 CTS-XHP, and 5 in W2, or O1 (maybe 52100, if Butch is comfortable with it, and the HT). However, he keeps telling me he really really wants to, but is backed right up at the moment. I'll see what I can do. :)

Thanks, guys!

From Butch's website:

The one on the far right looks like Lefty's, but I could be wrong. I like the profile...I like the flat-profiled one (2nd from left) too.

Please make this happen! If the prices are not rocket high this could be the only knife I need in my home kitchen.

I'm thinking something similar. In fact...it inspired me to change one of my pending orders with Butch to this size. He's got a big-ass pile of orders he's filling out right now (~40 pieces, razors and knives) and then he'll be getting in some new steel and can take on new orders. I'm going XHP but would love to see if Lefty's prebuy leads to some carbon pieces (W2 or B52[52100]).

Yup, these are the inspiration. I sold these for Butch, or at least four or five of them, and I still use/love the zebrawood one on the right. Believe it or not, they all have the same profile, and the different look is a result of the camera angle. They are awesome pieces, and the size is perfect for cooking at home, or in a cramped setting. I'd say these are some of the most natural feeling knives I've ever used/owned, to be perfectly truthful.

This would be amazing. Of course Edipis' idea intrigues me. I've also never had a monosteel nor have I tried 52100 or O1, and I'm chomping at the bit to do so. So I'll take any of the three if Butch has the HT down!

I'm trying with all my sweet talking, chocolate sending charm to get him to do a batch of these, and more parers, but the line-up is long, and it's hard to make him do ten knives for my spot in the line. I will try, however. :D

O1 is Butch's baby. As is CTS-XHP.

What if we all bake cookies and send them to him?? It's like a petition, but tasty. :D

I thought this was the case with O1, but you said W2 and assumed I was misinformed! Regardless.... huzzah!!

Lefty
02-25-2014, 10:00 PM
No, you were right. We had the order batch a couple years ago-ish, done in W2, and they are awesome. However, Butch works magic with O1, as well. I'm not trying to create too much of a stir, but I can sense a small batch coming....

yeah, send everything! Bourguignon, money, lies, puppies, women, threats or anything else that might help (or anything you want to get rid of)
