One more thing...I hesitate to do this, but I will for the right member. If the Harner Nakiri is here because of cost, I'll do $700, in two or three installments, over the course of the month or month and a half. This knife honestly is way too perfect to sit here. You guys are blowing my mind with this one!
Wow. So, we're now officially out of Brooklyn to London Shaving Soap, for the next couple of weeks. The feedback has been more than terrific on it, and I am in love, myself.
If you guys want to order some, I'll be taking orders, and getting the bars out ASAP. I'm expecting a couple of weeks, because of delivery and some other cool stuff in the works :) I'm also going to carry some unscented for you guys who have sensitive skin. I'm not judging, I promise. In fact, I use sensitive skin aftershave and I LIKE IT!!! :)
So, if you want to be first for the next batch of soap, post here and I'll compile a list. OR, if it's a secret, because your wife says you don't need more shaving products, just email me or pm me and I'll put you in the list, according to "sign up".
Thanks again, guys, and be ready for a VERY VERY cool twist on my "To London" line!
This blade is going straight on here, and if it's not gone in a few days (I'll be surprised if that's the case), I'll toss it up on my site for the rest of the world to fight over :)
It's a CCK 1303, rehandled by Matt Stephens. The handle is beautiful and incredibly comfortable! Matt does great work, trust me. :) The handle is dark (cocobolo, maybe?..I have to ask him), and a very nice copper colored slightly translucent resin for the ferrule.
The 1303 is legendary for its cutting ability and crazy edge taking, though, it doesn't hold it for as long as many people wish it did. However, this is the perfect cleaver for CCK fans and people who are interested in trying a real performer out, to get your feet wet, in the world of cleavers. I picked this up hoping to become a cleaver fan, but I still prefer short gyutos and sujis (40-48mm height). I held onto this for longer than I should have, just because I don't really want to let it go. BUT, that's just dumb. :)
Here are the goods. The price is $85, plus actual shipping. Thanks for looking!
Dimensions on this beauty are 211mmx87mm. Thickness at the spine is 4mm, tapering to just over 1.2mm at the tip.
Nice, I have a large CCK or I would be all over this...and it looks to be in great shape!
The body of the handle on that one is iron wood.
Tempting, very very tempting. Might have to think about this for a few.... Lol.
This handle is ironwood. That's what I said....haha. Thanks, Matt!
I think you had a typo there in the price. The way it's written currently, it looks like you're only charging $45 more than the regular price of a CCK1303, for one with an exquisite handle pre-installed. Might want to get that edited before someone buys it and holds you to your mistake.
Nope. Priced to be bought by Jack! :)
I already have a CCK-1303 at home and another at work!
Tell you what, I'll give you the one from work and two used Shapton Glass stones (1k and 4k) for it. ;)
