Just bought Dave's 270 so I am selling my 240. Used very lightly re-sharpened only once. The handle is two tone spalted maple burl/mammoth ivory spacer/amboyna ferrule.
$325.00 delivered to ConUS add $10.00 for delivery to Canada
Thanks Mike

If I hadn't bought 3 knives in the past few days, I would take this.

For those looking, Mike's handles are hands down superior to standard WAs. If I hadn't just made some purchases myself I would highly consider this, wanting to try both a Takeda and Kiritsuke gyuto.

Kind Regards

Another recommendation for Mike's handles. I have three and they are exceptional.

A third recommendation for Mike's work. Very crisp, clean, and comfortable handles.

I'll also vouch for Mike's work! I've got two now and both handles are clean and beautiful. He does a great job. And the knives have both been exactly as described. If my wife hadn't just gotten rear-ended and requiring a couple grand in body work (insurance will reimburse, but it might take a bit) I'd be all over this.

Hey Ben, Thanks, Hope the wife is OK

Oh yeah. Everyone's fine. Well, not the Mitsubishi Galant since my wife was in her Sierra 1500 with 12k lb rated, class 4 tow hitch... Dude must have been texting, cuz apparently my wife and a witness who was kind enough to stick around, both said that the light was red for a while...

Anyway, back to topic, PLEASE someone buy this. Mike's work rocks, and Takedas work rocks, so this is just going to be one kick-ass knife!

If someone doesn't grab this I'm sure I'll cave in at this price!

I was trying to justify that one in my head, but after picking up a Carter, JNS1k, Rika 5k and a vintage cast iron griddle in the last month, I wasn't really coming up with a good argument for the wife.:spankarse:

I don't have a good one for her either, but payment has been sent. I'll have to think of something pretty quickly. :scratchhead:
