This was my wife's primary knife until I bought that Takeda Bunka, and she hasn't touched this one since. This is the Kurouchi stainless clad blue steel from his pro line of knives. She is pretty hard on knives and most of the KU has been scrubbed off, it is dull, and has a couple chips. I thought I would offer the potential buyer a handle option. One handle is Buffalo horn, Honduran Rosewood Spacer, and Green Camel Bone ferrule. The other is spalted something I don't remember from Craig Stevens, nickle and fiber spacer, ebony ferrule. This knife is currently retailing for $230.00 considering its heavily used condition I am going to ask $135.00+ $40.00 to cover the cost of materials for the handle, delivered in conUS.

Yeah, well my knifey senses were tingling so I quickly logged on to check out the For Sale thread. :wink: Unfortunately it means I'll have to be listing some of my own once we get back home :(

****, scrambled eggs all over my face. I was just kidding about the Rodrigue, guys.

NO ChoP!

How about the non-chosen handle? Could that be for sale as well?

Got it done I used some malachite dust to color the epoxy and it turned out a little brighter than I thought. So I just wanted to get Ben's approval before I ship it

Yeah, I can see the concern. It might be too nice to sell. I say refund Ben's money and keep it for yourself!

yeah, that's awful: it should be sent to me for 5 or 6 years of evaluation.
