    Martell Sujihiki - For Sale

    FOR SALE


    I started making this suji a long time ago, can't even remember when, getting sidetracked for some other project. I always wanted to see how the wood/horn combo was going to come out so I decided last week that I'd finally finish it. The koa is presentation grade and has a great amount of chatoyance with a rich brown color. I used black buffalo for the spacer along with a single black pin.

    I took these pictures in all sorts of varyious (outside) lighting conditions trying to capture the koa's features/colors. What I have to show here is a decent enough representation but I assure you that it's movement (which can't be seen in pictures) will please much better in person. Seriously though, it really depends on the actual lighting conditions you have as to what you'll see and you can expect to always see something different in this handle.

    The blade is ground to be as stiff as possible while still being very thin with a slight convexity.

    I make my sujihiki profile to be used both on and off the board.



    Stats...

    Model - Sujihiki

    Blade Length - 300mm

    Steel - O1 (high carbon tool steel)

    Hardness - Rc 60-61 (with cryo)

    Height (at heel) - 45mm

    Handle - Western

    Handle Materials - Presentation grade koa, buffalo horn spacer, w/black pin




    Price - $650

    Shipping - Included in USA/International - will split cost with buyer



    Please contact through PM or email if interested in purchasing.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Whoa! Congrats in advance to whoever purchases this!

    If I did not already have three 300 mm carbon sujis this one would already be spoken for. What a beauty!

    not that I'd need another suji (or a suji at all) but, Dave, will this match my rehandled Hiromoto AS pair (Santoku and 240 gyuto)?
