    FS/ Cris Anderson gyuto-hiki mizu honyaki

    I wrote a review about this knife a few months ago. I was very impressed considering Cris had made only a handful of kitchen knives. He nailed it. Based on some feedback Cris made some adjustments and turned it into a more refined beauty. He made it for a friend of his but, it fell through and he offered it to me and I jumped at it. It is a supreme cutter and has a badass hamon. Cris makes all of his knives by hand with a hammer and anvil and a homemade heat treat oven. I do believe this is hammered out of 2" thick W2 drill rod from Aldo. Here are the Specs, Cris sent me with the knife. Jump on this because his prices are just going to get higher, Just like Will Catchsides.lol $500. conus shipping included.

    you can't believe how pretty this thing is in real life. The edge retention on this W2 is ridiculous.It is a pure cutter.
