View Full Version : Catcheside Cutlery - Knives available.

11-02-2012, 06:11 AM
Hello All :biggrin:
I thought I had better start a separate thread for finished knives which are available to purchase.
This little lot is ready and all finished. Details for each are on my website.
If your not already on there, click to join my mailing list to hear when extras are available and any special offers, I will have more stock to add shortly in plenty of time for Christmas.

11-02-2012, 07:24 AM
Will, you no longer use the "Hereford - England" mark?

Them's some nice knives you got there!

11-02-2012, 09:08 AM
Thanks Dave, yeah, i had to simlify the logo, to allow for a range of sizes. The tiny writing would not come out clearly on the small logo's.

11-02-2012, 11:23 AM
And will the "Hereford - England" work on; well lets say a 250 Funayuki? I kind of like it....

Wow, that suji is amazing. Looks like a single bevel.

11-08-2012, 02:43 PM
Still available, I'll offer a 20% forum discount off any of these 4, thats 20% off the prices listed on my site. Just drop me a pm and i'll send you the discounted total.:)

11-10-2012, 05:44 AM
the different levels of finishes on the suji's blade are really a thing of beauty. Rough and elegant at the same time. Impressive.

11-10-2012, 07:43 AM
I owe my wife a knife, but I have to wait until after the new year. Not sure how defense budget cuts will affect me. :curse:

11-28-2012, 12:44 PM
Just the lovely little san mai Suji remaining from that lot.
I've given a nice discount and applied it to the web price.:biggrin:

12-08-2012, 12:17 AM
The pictures don't do your knives justice . Got the little knife today and love it . The handle is beautiful, precise and very comfortable . The knife is outrageously sharp. I'm going to go over your sharpening progression . Going to get a lot of use out of it.

12-08-2012, 05:23 AM
Thanks Mike, glad you like it, thanks for the pics too.:biggrin:
All this lot now sold, thanks KKF.:bliss:

12-18-2012, 12:54 PM
Two Knives I have just added to my Store. Full details are now up.
The composite damascus Cleaver.
And this 150mm truffula petty.
Many Thanks All:biggrin:

12-18-2012, 01:19 PM
When I have no cash Pierre posts a great knife, Marko posts sweet knives, Avis, ealy and now this cleaver! You are all killing me! I must start moving on my being independently wealthy plan. Awesome work Will! I have a catcheside petty and it is an awesome knife and one of only 3 I have and will keep (next to a harner nakiri and ealy gyuto) forever!

12-18-2012, 01:26 PM
Thanks Mate, I will be updating my order page for the new year to include this design of knife in more modestly priced materials.:biggrin:

These 3 Guys here with the new Utility line handles are up in store.:hungry:

03-07-2013, 09:17 AM
Will - the site is still down (according to my attempt at 9:15am EST on 3/7).

03-07-2013, 09:25 AM
It has been back up since last night. No problems that I can see, do let me know if it continues to not work for you. Or drop me a pm if all else fails for pricing.

03-07-2013, 09:38 AM
The site seems to work just fine for me. And the new line looks great, Will! If a 210 gyuto will appear in this line, then I think I'll just have snag one.

03-07-2013, 09:48 AM
Cheers, I'll bear that in mind, as I'll be adding some most weeks, thats the plan anyway.:biggrin:

03-08-2013, 02:07 PM
The 195mm Petty has sold, thanks:biggrin:

03-16-2013, 09:30 AM
The Two Gyuto are still available. :biggrin:

03-21-2013, 02:50 PM
245mm Gyuto Sold.

I have 2 new ones in stainless to add to the Store.

A lovely 210mm Nakiri in special hollow/double bevel
Another 240mm Gyuto
The 270mm is also still available.

I will run a forum special on these up to the end of the weekend and throw in postage and payment fees.

So the 240mm is 240 all in
The 270 mm is 265 all in
The Nakiri is 280 all in

Technology is not playing ball with pictures tonight, but the 240mm is the same as the one on my website, the 270 is up on my site, here is a sneaky pic of the Nakiri, hopefully photobucket will work tomorrow again and I will get some more.

PM Me for this offer as prices will be in full on my site.


03-21-2013, 03:16 PM
240mm Gone!:bigeek:

03-21-2013, 04:13 PM
270mm Gone :biggrin:

03-21-2013, 06:26 PM
DOH!!!!!!! Gawd d&$(:;+#!(=+:_!#/++/#&$):/+;)#***~*!!!!!!!!,!!!

03-22-2013, 07:17 AM
The Nakiri pics and specs are now up on my site.
Photobucket has gone badly wrong and just lost me several hours work, not very impressed and no pics in the thread i'm afraid, but they are on my website.
Forum weekend deal price is 280 pm me for this introductory offer.

03-22-2013, 11:02 AM
Here are the pics.

Great looking Nakiri Will.
Beautiful, yet conservative.
I think you have a winner with the Bubinga/Blackwood combo.

03-22-2013, 03:27 PM

Is that nakiri pretty much the same as the one in the passaround?


03-22-2013, 03:51 PM
Thanks Mark:doublethumbsup:
Chinacats, The pass around knife is a similar grind but the knives are quite different. I would say this is a more traditional Nakiri shape, this is a bigger knife, grinding this one to the spine gave me better control over the geometry. I deliberately made the bevel smaller on this one to accentuate the release. So a few tweaks and improvements. :D

03-22-2013, 06:48 PM
I could probably put that better....
The pass around knife is the original if you like, the first knife I ground the hollow faces. As such its a little quirky in its shape and it has the Ko finish. Its a personal knife, I think you guys will love it and it tells you what you need to know in use about this geometry. This package is the refined version, largely cosmetic, but it is a bigger overall knife and with a couple of performance tweaks. But the way they cut is very similar. I have a video of this one uploading, It in HD too but it will likely take all night!
Here are the blade specs.
Blade length - 214 mm
Handle Length - 142mm
Height over heel - 64mm, halfway 58mm, At tip 47mm
Taper on spine - 3mm - 2.5mm - 1.6mm
Taper at apex of hollow - 1.25 - 1mm - 0.8mm
Balance point 30mm in front of handle.
Weight approx 240 grams.

That should tell you something about the way the blade feels and cuts... Its stiff, zero flex, has weight, yet cuts with very little resistance. I knew it would and it still surprised me:D Video coming up.
And again the Forum only special only the Nakiri left... is on until the end of Sunday...Or when I rise on monday. Free shipping and fees on the web price so 280.
I have some coming up in carbon, but need grinding........

03-23-2013, 01:52 PM
Nakiri video is now up.

03-23-2013, 04:09 PM
very sexy!

04-02-2013, 01:17 PM
This amazing Nakiri is still available for purchase now in my Store.
Carbon ones coming up....

04-02-2013, 02:13 PM
Dude....if that was CAD not Euros my bank account would be empty

04-02-2013, 02:43 PM
Well its nice to know its pushing some buttons anyway. :)
The price is what it is I'm afraid, so much more work in one of these than a convex ground Gyuto.......I think its very much worth it for the effect.:D

04-02-2013, 02:51 PM
Well its nice to know its pushing some buttons anyway. :)
The price is what it is I'm afraid, so much more work in one of these than a convex ground Gyuto.......I think its very much worth it for the effect.:D

I completely respect the price, im just drooling and being wishful in my thinking!

04-08-2013, 11:36 AM
Quick Early doors on these, before I fix the handles on, sharpen, get some more pictures, and put them in my store....
Catcheside Gyuto's with the Utility handle, These in glorious carbon 01 tested to 61hrc.
These are a little thicker than the stainless, only by a shade over the heel, full distal taper, wonderfully convex and very thin at the edge and tip. tested on food they cut and release very nicely.


The 270mm 58mm at the heel - 275 all in.
The 240mm 54mm at the heel - 245 all in.
The 210mm 48mm at the heel - 205 all in.

And these two guys, in Stainless clad carbon core, (01).


Again very sturdy Knives, Just over 3mm over the heel, with slightly convex distal taper on these, allowing more convex geometry for the mid section of the knife too. So not lasers, but very very thin at the edge and tip, making them cut wonderfully.
These are finished to a nice satin hand rubbed finish and etched.
The handles incorporate Amboyna, Cow horn, with white faux ivory and red spacers.
The balance for both is on the choil.

The logo's came out a bit weak on these, 304 stainless hates being etched it seems. Otherwise I'm very happy with these indeed.

The 240mm - 58mm height - 440
The 200mm - 51mm height - 375

Pm any interest or questions or in the thread.

Many Thanks:)


04-08-2013, 12:00 PM
ohhhhhhh, those are gorgeous knives Will. Nice work! What's shipping go for these days, say.... to Maryland, US?

04-08-2013, 12:03 PM
Those prices are all inclusive for you lovely lot.:)

04-08-2013, 02:20 PM
Great looking knives, Will! Glad they're not stainless this time around. Then I'd have to make a hard decision, since I don't have the money. :)

04-08-2013, 04:40 PM
Stainless clad carbon core though.....best of both worlds:D

04-08-2013, 04:56 PM
Damn brake job . . . . damn, damn, damn. Gorgeous work Will - I seriously need to plant a money bush this year - (I'm not greedy) Hey - need a relic Tele body and neck by any chance? Or maybe a whole custom MoTone Tele, or Strat . . . hey just throwing it out there.

04-08-2013, 05:55 PM
Mmm If I played I would be very tempted....But really these are my bill payers. Cheers Mike:)

04-10-2013, 09:41 AM
The carbon Utility line are all now up on my Site as are the Red sharks as i'm calling them in stainless san mai. Lots and lots of detail and geometry shots are up for those who asked. I would have put them in here but photobucket is playing up again.

04-10-2013, 11:18 AM
Right trying to not have to use Photobucket
These are the Carbon Catcheside Utility Gyuto detail shots.

04-10-2013, 11:40 AM
The Red Shark stainless san mai pair....





04-10-2013, 12:10 PM
The 200mm Red Shark is SOLD:)

04-10-2013, 01:11 PM
Congrats on the quick sale! I like the look of the angled heel--seems like I am constantly cutting myself with that part of the blade (just handling not while cutting). Is that something new for you?

04-10-2013, 01:33 PM
I do mostly take a little notch out of the heel there to stop it catching on flesh, but not usually so much as that. The 304l/01 combination is very particular the way it needs to be forged and prepared for heat treatment, or the cladding will rip the core in two, so that was another fail safe as I have seen a split core start from that vulnerable point on failed pieces.
After it has been tempered its quite stable. But I have several dramatically failed pieces to show what can go wrong at almost every stage:D Another reason why I am particularly pleased with these, because I got it to work eventually.....:D

04-11-2013, 05:42 AM
The Red Shark 240mm is SPF, thanks KKF:biggrin:

Still available in the Catche'store are

210 carbon Gyuto, Utility line handle - 215
240 Carbon Gyuto, Utility line handle- 245
270 Carbon Gyuto, Utility Line handle- 275

Also the fabulous Stainless special grind Nakiri, I will continue the offer on that for KKF at 280 via pm only.

04-15-2013, 07:47 AM
Both the Red Sharks now sold and shipped.

Still available are
210 carbon Gyuto, Utility line handle - 215
240 Carbon Gyuto, Utility line handle- 245
270 Carbon Gyuto, Utility Line handle- 275

Also the Stainless Nakiri. 280 via pm only.

Above prices include shipping and payment fees.

I believe these knives offer superb value for money for the time are care put into the heat treatment and grind. Each and every knife is tested with the final thinning being done by hand assuring the best possible geometry right into the thin edge. This is the same process as for my custom knives.

04-15-2013, 07:57 AM
I can't believe these haven't sold yet! That 270mm Gyuto looks awesome!

04-15-2013, 10:02 AM
Thanks Mate :biggrin:

04-16-2013, 01:05 PM
Ok lets shake some life into this. These are superb knives and they want to be out there being used.
Its my birthday next monday and I am off on a break along the welsh coast on my aging honda cbr 400 for the week. So a little holiday bonus would be most welcome and to pay some bills before I go away.

So I will offer the next two to sell of the knives currently listed on my site at a %20 discount. For the Nakiri the 20% is off the forum offer price. I really want to see these knives out there being used and talked about. Pm me for this offer and I will give you the total and my paypal details.

So this is valid for any of the 3 carbon utility or the stainless Nakiri. But only the first two to sell. This is valid until monday 22nd, (my birthday):D

04-16-2013, 01:26 PM
PM sent on 210

04-16-2013, 02:06 PM
Hang on Guys had a little wave of pm's there. I will just confirm which knife/knives the first wants. Ejd, I will get back to you shortly.

04-16-2013, 09:19 PM
240 or 270 still available?

04-17-2013, 02:05 AM
OK fellas, EJd gets the 210mm and Marc gets the 240mm, pending payment, I will send you details.
Many Thanks Guys, I will post a picture of me with my Bike eating a fish on the beach next week for you in gratitude:biggrin:

04-18-2013, 02:30 PM
The 200 Redshark got here yesterday, safe and sound. It is beautiful!!!:bliss:

04-18-2013, 04:44 PM
Thanks Ed, thats great, glad it got the safe and sound.:)

04-20-2013, 08:19 PM
Finally got a chance to use the 200 Red Shark tonight. What a cutter! :fanning: Goes through potatoes like they are butter and has very good release. What type of grind are you using on them, Will? Whatever it is, it's great. My daughter used it and has since claimed the 210 carbon as her own when it gets here. :knife:

05-01-2013, 09:34 AM
Stellar knife, Will. This thing is a beast on prep!
Thanks again!


05-01-2013, 11:00 AM
Thanks Guys, Ed, The grind I have come to which works best is basically a blended double bevel, taken very thin at the edge. It ends up being a very robust grind with great release, especially on a thicker knife like yours. The grind appears convex to the eye. If you look at the heel you will see there is an apex to the convex. This is often described as a wave, I find this to give the best release. And as long as the time is taken to get it uber thin at the edge it cuts well too.
I have my processes to make sure a knife cuts food well out of the box. I tend to grind the knife as close as I can get it on belts, test it on food, then do the final thinning by hand on Diamond plates, retest as necessary, then hand finish.
I do it this way as many times I have hand finished a knife, tested it, not been as happy as I could be....so needed to grind a bit more and hand finish all over again:laugh:

Marc, thats fantastic mate, Its a great feeling to have some worker bee knives out there, let me know how it works out in the long term. That Patina is coming already.:)

05-01-2013, 11:06 AM
The 210 arrived yesterday. Not sure if I'll be able to give you feedback anytime soon, as my daughter has appropriated it. :doublethumbsup:

05-09-2013, 12:15 PM
There is still the 270mm carbon Utilty line left. And the wonderful special grind stainless Nakiri. I had better have a post holiday sale and offer 20% off the web price on these to you guys here by pm.
Pictures and specs here...
Thanks All:biggrin:

05-09-2013, 01:19 PM
I love that profile of the 270. And I was really enjoying the 240, can't wait to get back in to the kitchen to use it again!

05-09-2013, 01:21 PM
Cheers Marc, great to hear:biggrin:

05-09-2013, 02:18 PM
PM on the Nakiri.

05-09-2013, 03:31 PM
Fabulous Nakiri Sold to Ed. I'm so happy you are buying so many of my knives Ed, thank you.:biggrin:

05-09-2013, 08:05 PM
Congratulations to Will and Ed!

05-10-2013, 03:19 AM
Thanks buddy, 270mm carbon is also now sold.
Many Thanks

05-24-2013, 02:54 PM

I will do the 20% discount and a bit more on this one so be quick.... 230 all in, will include a nice Knife Mat to wrap it in and Knife certificate.

They are gorgeous Will. I'll be stunned if they last the weekend.

10-27-2013, 05:23 AM
Thank you Kind Sir, very nice to wake up to Sales, the two Gyuto's and a parer are gone to members here, thanks KKF.
Three of the Parers are remaining. I had a chance to get some better shots for each of the stainless damascus, which I have added to my site.

Lucky folks! Those gyutos look stellar!

10-28-2013, 03:33 PM
Both Gyuto's and the 78mm Parer got packed and sent off today. Three lovely stainless damascus clad parers are still in store. The largest really a Petty at 110mm. :)

10-28-2013, 04:07 PM
I wish I could get one of those. Just insane work, Will.

10-28-2013, 09:29 PM
Beautiful work, Will. Can't wait to see how mine turns out. :doublethumbsup:

10-31-2013, 05:05 AM
Thank you Ed, Im looking forward to seeing it too, after the one that was not, but the next feather damascus will be even better;)

A couple of Pares still remaining. These are RARE from me. Im surprised they are still there.:big eek:

10-31-2013, 06:08 AM
The 23cm Guyto arrived this morning in a very nice package !!!! Result I was late at work as I had to chop some apples :D. First impressions very good. It is a light and nimble knife. Apples aren't the hardest vegetable but the was 0 effort, very happy with the result.

I am not 100% certain about the handle, seems a bit short for me compering to the other wa hanldes I had.

I will spend more time with it tonight, I am planning to make a winter vegeterian stew.


10-31-2013, 08:41 AM
Excellent thanks, let me know how you get on with it. A handle length to suit someones hand would br the diagonal measurement across your palm. Any extra length is spare or pertruding. These were 13 cm in length i think or just under if your palm measurement is 14 plus it could be a tad short for you. Drop me a pm aftet you have used it a whike and we will work it out.

10-31-2013, 09:24 AM
Of course, and I will give an initial review after using it. My current go-to gyuto is going to have some new shoes... so I will use it alot. I heard that you will be at Maxim's gathering ! Unfortunately I have other commitments for the weekend.

By the way did you etch the edge :D


10-31-2013, 09:34 AM
Light and nimble? Crazy. The Catcheside gyuto I am doing some work for is not light, but I mean that in a good way. I'd put it in the medium category. It's a gorgeous piece, for sure, though.

10-31-2013, 09:47 AM
Well this is how it felt, I am not an expert on how to categorise the gyutos :D but sure it is a gorgeous piece of cutting art.

All credits to this impulse purchase goes to my girlfriend.

:plus1: My Red Shark gyuto is not light, but it cuts so well that you just fly through things. Maybe that takes some of the weight off. :biggrin:

10-31-2013, 01:51 PM
The san mai are not thin. I would say they are medium too Lefty... Thickness between 3.5mm and 4mm at the heel. Ed I think yours is on the thicker side close to 4mm and Vangelis, around 3.6mm. I think the balance will have allot to do with it feeling nimble and a slender tip. The weight is pretty much over the heel. Happy cutting,Thanks All:biggrin:

10-31-2013, 04:19 PM
I have set up myself a lightbox so I can get home late and still be able to get some well lit Photos for the my site. Next lot I will do this on the website.
Here are a few test shots of the two tone amboyna Paring knife in my store. Camera is also new to me, my first dslr, an old Eos D20, really nice piece of kit and an ebay bargain:D

Im pretty happy for a first go with the kit, been a while since I used a full manual camera, I need to get a tripod to get the depth of field type shots. What do you think?

10-31-2013, 07:39 PM
It looks pretty nice to me, Will. The colours look really true, which I often find a difficult task.

10-31-2013, 08:11 PM
Great pictures will!! You captured the grains really well

12-20-2013, 03:57 PM
you said you still have something for sale? :)

Dream Burls
12-20-2013, 09:28 PM
Nice Will. The EOS line is very good. A tripod will help with the depth of field, but the pictures you posted look great for handheld shots.

01-10-2014, 12:09 PM
Tripod is deffo still on the list!
Just a quick note to say I added two knives to my site. A stainless damascus D2 core Honesuki, and a Stainless sammy/01 core 70mm Parer:)

01-11-2014, 04:19 PM
I finally bought myself a decent Tripod today, a Manfrotto one, so excuse the shed load of pictures, some shot for depth of field. These are the two available. There are actually two of the D2 core hard use Petty available, a more honesuki shape and a more small Petty, line knife one. I want to keep one back for a while to test against cpm 3v. But I'm not too fussed which one I sell if someone fancies the other one let me know. Lots of pics of the Parer, so many tiny details to get across.

Parer 70mm

I notice that you custom makers been pumping out new pieces at unbelievable speed lately. Santa must have loaned you his elves after the Christmas season, lol.

Thanks Ferry, Sometimes I put a couple aside for a rainy day

Having spent some time nearby (Bromyard) on several occasions, I really have to say that you have quite many rainy days on your island... ;-)

Another more simple but very pretty Knife added to the store today, in my Cpm3v core stainless clad:)

Stainless steel san mai , Petty 180mm, CPM3v core, 304L cladding.
This is hand rubbed then has a semi mirror polish to bring out the weld activity in the etch.
Love this steel in a kitchen knife, as easy to sharpen as aeb-l. Takes a fine edge and has excellent wear resistance for a finer carbide steel.
Blade length 170mm
Height at heel 38mm
Thickness on spine over heel 3mm
Full distal taper, convex ground to very thin at the edge.
Handle is in Wild almond burl, Koa Spacer with a Jadeite spacer.
Balance bang on the heel on this one. Feels great!

Buy now in store.

Not anymore Will, see you already sold it :P Your mail was in my inbox for 15 minutes and it was gone :o

It's a beauty really, good to see someone got it that quick :)

07-30-2014, 05:12 PM
Mmm both knives are showing in stock in my stock list admin part. The Suji is saying out of stock on my website, could be someone clicked on it by accident. Takes a few minutes to refresh back to showing stock again, if the is no check out. But both still available, if anyone is having trouble drop me a pm or email.

07-30-2014, 05:27 PM
If the petty is available i'll take it. I clicked on the petty, it said it was added to the cart but no link to the cart shows up?

07-30-2014, 05:44 PM
Mmmm I have not had this glitch before, It may be just the button type I selected wrong. As both knives have been showing no stock, meaning someone has clicked to purchase but no checkout, or as you say checkout is not coming up. I have replaced the Buy now with direct contact email link, until I work out what happened.
Dinsdale, excellent, sorry for the checkout problem there....if you would like the Petty, drop me an email or pm and I will send my paypal info. Cheers

07-30-2014, 05:54 PM
Yes I was using a button which opens an internal checkout, which I have not set up. I normally use a standalone button which simply redirects to paypal checkout. Will leave it as email contact overnight and see who was trying to get what. Sorry folks, still at least I know what was happening now.

07-30-2014, 06:33 PM
Thanks Dinsdale, sold to that Man. And I enjoyed catching up on some Monty Python....

The Suji is still available:)

07-30-2014, 08:13 PM
I can never get enough of MP. Funniest show in the history of television

07-31-2014, 11:04 AM
I told you Will, the page should be named "Knives I used to have for sale". :biggrin:

08-07-2014, 03:57 AM
Thanks Ed, yes the first hour of having a knife for sale is a bit crazy. Not very good when I had made an error with the buttons. Both appeared to have sold at one point. The san mai was claimed however no one checked out with the Suji in the end and I had no follow up email, so I guess someone held off or pressed the button by mistake.
So the One off powder damascus Suji is still available. Buttons work now I have checked :)

08-12-2014, 09:44 AM
After the check out fiasco I have upgraded my checkout system.
Now accepting Credit/debit card as well as Paypal for your convenience.
Thanks All

And here are the knife specs :)

235mm Stainless Clad 1.2442 carbon Gyuto.

Description- A full size Gyuto, with zero flex over the blade, yet offering just the right combination of thin edge and convex geometry to cut with surprisingly low friction, offering release in softer foods and with minimal wedge in hard food. The balance is right on the heel, making this knife feel and handle nimbler than the weight. Grind and weight combined with thin edge geometry give a great feeling of control and separation in cutting. Core material is German 1.2442, like a good example of blue 1 with a little finer grain and toughness, giving very satisfying results in long edge holding and easy of sharpening.
Blade Materials 1.2442 carbon steel @64-65 hrc, with 304L cladding
Blade length 235mm
Height- 47mm
Thickness on spine above heel 4mm, (4.3mm entering handle)
Grind- Convex blended bevels, very thin at the edge. See heel shot.
Handle length- 140mm
Balance On heel.
Handle materials- Buffalo horn with some lovely pale fleck, white spacer and Two tone amboyna burl.

WOW, Will. It looks really cool. I really enjoy looking at the contrast between Jigane and Hagane.

02-23-2015, 04:29 AM
Thanks Andrey my friend, they are a pleasure to make, polishing brings out the "shadow" of the carbon then a very brief etch followed by removal of oxides. Im not a big fan of black and white etches, I like to see the metal and let the carbon take a nice patina in use :) I think you would like this steel, its very hard and nice to sharpen. :cheffry:

Yes, Will, the polishing it's not the same as etching. I hate etching, you know, the work hands do it's not the same as acid does ;). I know i would really enjoy it, that's why i'm looking so often on it. What stops we for now- the thinner pocket :(, but i work to improve it. Sooner or later i'll get it, be sure ;).
Would like to see you soon, hope you'll change your mind ;););)

Just a reminder that you can buy this beautifully finished, performance piece of stainless san mai on my site, full geometry, zero flex, except the edge which is so thin you can flex it with your nail, gorgeous core steel at 65hrc.....its not messing about...... waiting to be loved. :D

Yep, i saw it.
When do you plan to make next " Honyaki" knife? We talked about your monosteel knives

02-28-2015, 02:33 PM
In the 1.2442? I need to talk to the nice German man about getting a full sheet, or wider pieces, then I could do some mono in 1.2442. Main priority at the moment is catching up with commissions as Im finally getting into a rhythm on that side of work.:biggrin:

02-28-2015, 02:53 PM
Are you just messing around with me with the number?? It is just a number I threw in with my initials, but it is like you know I have been almost pulling the trigger on your other knife available :)

I bought a 270mm from you for my brother who is in London, but wanted to buy a smaller knife for him as well. Will probably come out this year and figured I could take whatever knife he did not want.

02-28-2015, 03:39 PM
That is a crazy coincidence , and to think I wanted to give it a snappier nick name:laugh:


02-28-2015, 10:49 PM
That is a funny coincidence! Clearly the universe is telling you that you must buy this knife!

03-01-2015, 05:58 AM
Thats what I thought too:D

03-01-2015, 02:24 PM
Why fight it, I have been wanting something from Will :bliss:

03-01-2015, 05:47 PM
Well done Mat, you owe yourself one, and I think you will love this knife.:biggrin:

03-04-2015, 02:29 PM
Congrats ..This one was tugging hard!

03-04-2015, 03:06 PM
Hello Nasr, thanks you sir, don't worry though, yours will be worth the wait:doublethumbsup:

03-15-2015, 04:13 PM
Picked it up yesterday, absolutely love the look of the knife! The handle is awesome! Definitely substantial, has a thicker spine as you can see from the photos. Falls through everything that I have cut and very little sticking to the blade (if any).

Will post some pics in the next couple of days. Thank you Will!

03-19-2015, 05:52 AM
Excellent, thanks very much, thats nice to hear :)
