View Full Version : Learning Curve Moritaka

I don't know if anyone will be interested in this knife, but I thought I would put it out there and try. This is the knife that I have learned everything I know about knives on (not much) It's been thinned, re-profiled , polished. rounded, re-beveled, re-sharpened about a million times, rehandled (about 10 times). The handle that is on it now is one of my early ones so don't expect Marko like precision. It is Horn, with Bone spacers, Honduran Rosewood, and Mammoth tooth end cap. Symmetry issues are free of charge. 240mm Kiritsuki Gyuto. $100.00 Delivered in conUS
Thanks Mike

Handle looks cool as hell...you are practically giving this thing away. Wish I would of seen this 20 minutes ago.

I'm glad Dave got the bugs fixed for the android. Otherwise I would not have seen this.

I really didn't think anyone would want a knife I have been abusing the hell out of for the last year. Guess I was wrong again.

Wow. That was quick. I totally missed the boat and I wasn't even working today.

Nice grab. I love two toned Honduran Rosewood handles.

Received the knife today. Thanks Mike. I don't know about you, but I am pretty glad that you beat up on this knife and it was your learning curve knife, because, your re-profile is pretty awesome. Actually, it is probably much better than the original state that Moritaka delivered it. You are pretty modest about your handle too. Beautiful handle with a tad bit of wabi-sabi. I tried handle making myself, and trust me, your work rivals the best. Thanks again for the bargain of the century.
