FS: Marko 225 petty/suji w/custom handle
Up for grabs is a brand new, unused (still has lacquer-type film on the blade) Marko 225 suji/petty practice knife with custom Marko ebony handle. I bought this almost two months ago during his last practice knife sale and got it last monday. After opening the package and handling it a bit I decided its just not a size/style of knife that ill use, so I'm offering it to you guys. It's taller than a typical suji of this length, and as you can see from the pics, allows just enough knuckle clearance to be a pretty useful line knife if you're a fan of that style. Obviously I can't say how it cuts, but by reputation if guess it'll get the job done well. Blade had just a little flex towards the tip, but I don't think you'd notice it in normal use. Its more sturdy than "laser-ish", but certainly thin at the edge. Spine and choil are rounded and polished nicely.
Marko also put a beautiful Handle on this knife which looks and feels awesome. It's Macassar ebony with nickel/silver spacer and blackwood ferrule. You can see Marko's nice pictures here in his WIP thread: http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/sh...l=1#post200582
Blade is 52100 carbon steel and measures 225 tip to heel, 238 handle to tip 38mm tall over the heel. I don't have calipers to measure widths, sorry.
Price is $350 (which is what I paid), I pay shipping (conus), buyer covers Paypal fees ($10).
Here are a few pics I took:
Thanks for looking. PM with questions or to call dibs.
