    Second half of the fire sale

    Up for grabs are two T/C blades I just recently got in trade and purchase. I have only used them for about a week and then gave them a gentle refurb. I removed most of the sharpening scratches and I will be giving them both a lite re-etch tomorrow. They are both 240mm blade length. one was made for Jkerr here on the forum and has a beautiful handle with copper rivets and multicolor wood spacers The handle looks to be made of cocobolo and the saya also. The blade is a single bevel with a 90/10 edge bevel no ura. It was originally a kurouchi that Josh scrubbed off. I will be etching it in a boiled vinegar and salt solution to give it a dark grey etch . It develops a beautiful patina and is fairly non reactive. The blade is made of o1 and weighs 282 grams. There is a split running down the length of the ferrule but, it has been filled with CA glue and is stable and sanded smooth. It does not effect performance and you can't feel it. Here is your chance to get a custom made knife from a unique maker with no wait at a significant discount. $350 Conus shipping international shippers we maybe able to work something out.

    The second one is a bit more interesting I think. It is also 240mm with a tsuchime blade and it has a semi kurouchi finish. I think it is o1. It is definitely, carbon steel. It has a very interesting texture on the back it almost looks like a starry sky it has little tiny shiny bumps on the back with a black background, The front has a hammered finish and an overall grey appearance . There is a very cool little plaque on the back written in Kanji. Mr Sugai says it says something like "Red Trout" So it is called the Red Trout. It has copper spacers and rosewood and ebony handle. 3mm spine above the heel. it is a beautiful stout knife. single bevel style with a 90/10 edge bevel and no ura. $350.00 conus shipping

    That first TC I got from Josh was going to go to a pay it forward project. When I gave it to the cook, he got indignant and said "why would you give me a used knife for? I want something new a real knife like a wustof." I took the knife back and left. *********!

    Seriously, that happened? What kind of cook would reject an amazing knife gifted by a thoughtful coworker/mentor, with no strings attached, besides use and enjoy it? I would be incredibly pizzissed at the guy. It would be one of those, I'm not mad at you, just very disappointed situations. Truly un-freaking-believeable. I've been doing this 12 years and still don't have a blade as nice as a TC. I'd probably let the guy go too.

    Very, very lovely knives btw

    Not one of my cooks. My cooks are all sporting knives from me.
