    Elmax Stainless 240mm Gyuto

    Heres one I just finished and will be offering here for you knife nuts!! Asking $765.00

    The specs on this one are as follows.

    Steel: ELMAX stainless Heat treated to a RC of 63.5
    Blade: 240mm on the edge. 48.1mm at the heel. 2.1mm thick above the heel tapering to the tip.
    Grind: Blade is ground convexed with distal taper.
    Spine and heel have been rounded.
    Handle: Beautiful Spalted Hackberry with stabilized maple bolsters. Stainless pins with single mosaic. Black and nickle spacers.

    Asking $765.00

    This steel is amazing stuff. Its a 3rd gen. powder metal that has very high wear resistance and toughness. With a fine grain structure. It takes a crazy sharp edge and should hold a working edge for a very long time!

    Here is a link to Zknives web site where I did a comparison on Elmax next to 2 other well known performers in the kitchen. I love this site, if you have not checked it out yet take a few and give it a look. Lots of great info and photos etc. http://zknives.com/knives/steels/ste...b-l&hrn=1&gm=0


    Anyone interested in this knife is welcome to message me or post here and I will contact you to exchange info.


    Here are some images.


    Thanks and God Bless

    The knife arrived yesterday and I have to say (as many others have), the pictures do not come close to doing it justice. So either Randy is a lousy photographer , or his work is is so good that it has to be seen in person to truly appreciate it. If you think you might want a custom knife, I can heartily recommend Randy; he is extremely easy to work with and his enthusiasm is infectious (and yes, I have a custom job on order, but have been sworn to secrecy; you'll just have to wait for it).

    ejd53, Glad to hear that it arrived safe. After you have a chance to work with it a while I would love to get some feedback. Im interested to get your take on edge holding and sharpening, OAL cutting and whatever else is important to you.

    until then. Have fun and stay sharp!
    Happy Easter
