During the last prebuy I had one customer ask for a pair of 210 gyutos along with his 240. I made them and they were fun to do, so I want to make some more. I have also seen some discussion of a line knife and this is a knife that I think would fit into that category. They will be convex ground like my 240 gyutos. The price will be $360 with 50% up front similar to what I did last time. The height of these blades is 46mm.
At the suggestion of a forum member i have also decided to add 180mm nakiris to this prebuy. The nakiri will be almost fully flat ground, this will definately be a laser, an absolute veg knife, not necessarily a potato knife. The price for these will be $300 with a 50% deposit.
The materials for these will be similar to the last time as well, O-1 for the carbon steel versions, but I have had a difficult time tracking down more AEB-L. Instead I will be using an almost identical steel 13c26 which is made by another company(see attached chart)
I would also be perfectly happy to make these out of damascus; either carbon or stainless(which would be AEB-L, I still have alot of the thin stock left) for an increased price of course, PM me for details.
Please consult my handle gallery, or check out the stuff that Mark at burlsource has on offer for handle material selection.
I am planning to start these on feb 1, I still have a few orders to finish, but I thought I would get the ball rolling.
For questions, either post here or PM me.
