Here's the next two knife patterns that we'll be making. They're being made in O-1 (at Rc60-61) both only in western to start but eventually we will offer wa as well but not for awhile.

*Note - The petty handle is shown slightly oversize on purpose to allow for tweaking when shaping the scales.


Nakiri stats

Blade Length - 180mm
Height (at heel) - 60mm
Price - $375


Petty stats

Blade Length - 160mm
Height (at heel) - 34mm

Looks good to me, Dave. Are you planning on sticking to the same type of "bolster?"

I've been trying to set up my website to allow for ordering but I'm having big problems with it. I'll call support tomorrow and see what they can do, I'm too tired right now.

Once this is fixed the option for monthly payments will be made available just like the gyutos & sujis. This has proven to be a very popular method of purchasing our knives so I'm continuing on with it.

I'll be sure to mention when the site is set up. :)

Yes sir, the wood bolster has been working out nice for me and it's been the most requested so I'm sticking with it. Plus, I like the ability to add a little flair to each knife making them one of a kinds.

Thanks, I'm glad that you noticed since this was intentional. I designed it to be what I like in a petty and that's the ability to work off and on the board.

OK both of these new knives have been added to our shopping cart and are available to order on the monthly payment plan. I will be sending the templates to the waterjet folks this week and getting some blanks cut from our steel following that.

*Note - At this time there is not a wa handle option, these are to be western handled knives.


See Martell 180mm Nakiri (http://www.japaneseknifesharpeningstore.com/product-p/dm180naklw.htm) & Martell 160mm Petty (http://www.japaneseknifesharpeningstore.com/product-p/dm160petlw.htm) for details



Thanks to all of you for your interest! :)

Are you saying it has nothing to do with the PITA the last metal bolsters were ;)

The nakiri & petty blanks just arrived this morning, I'm tweaking the profiles to perfection this afternoon, and will send them off to heat treat tomorrow afternoon. I sure can't wait to get going on these new patterns. :)
