    2 Pierre Rodrigue Knives!

    Well everyone.... it is time to starting thinning out my knife collecting and raising some funds for a few other things going on in life. First up for sale are 2 knives by Pierre

    1) 240 Damasteel gyuto. This was from the pass around that Pierre held a while ago. After the pass around I requested that the knife be thinned out a lot and the profile be made more flat. Needless to say, he did these two things for me. The knife is much better then it was during the pass around in my honest opinion. Asking $700

    2) 240 CMP154 custom line knife. I had Pierre make this for me a few years ago. It is an awesome knife. I was very excited for it but by the time my name came up on the list and I actually got the knife, I was no longer working a line on a daily bases. I still decided to keep the knife because it was from Pierre and my only knife by him. I liked it so much that I ended up ordering a 300mm suji from him. This knife came with a wavy grind to it. I took a photo that shows one of them pretty well. You can see that the knife is not completely flat on the side. The edge has a small part were the bevel waves a bit larger at this spot on the side. The whole edge still touches the board during use. Asking $425

    I just had these knives sharpened by Jon at Japanese Knife Imports. (Photos were taken before final sharpening)

    Some people asked for some more specs. Here they are.

    Gyuto:
    50mm Tall
    2.5mm at handle
    2.3mm above heel
    2.03 half way
    1.18mm 1 inch from the tip
    .97mm 1 cm from tip
    260 grams (9.17 ounces)

    This knife had a very nice convex grind. The middle of the blade is 2.03mm at the spine but the thickest spot on the blade at that point is 2.38mm.


    The Suji/line knife:

    I call it a line knife because of the height.
    42.85mm tall
    197 grams
    7oz
    2.7mm at handle
    2.7mm at heel
    1.9mm mid way
    1.2mm at the drop in the spine before the tip
    .75mm 1cm from the tip

    Let me know if there are any other questions.

    Really nice gyuto. Can you tell us which steels it is made of? If not, at least whether stainless or not?
