Hello everyone. As some already know, I have been working on a "secret" project and I am now ready to tell you all what it is.
I have been working closely with Lamson & Goodnow (L&G for short) Designing and refining a HHH Production 240mm gyuto. I chose AEB-L Stainless steel, because its a great Stainless. The profile is my 240mm western. L&G have been doing great things as of late and I know these knives will be another home run.
They will be AEB-L, Heat treated to my specs. with a RC of 60/61
They will be ground thin at the edge and will be great all around cutters.
These knives are my western profile and will have beautiful 4AAAA figured rosewood handles. and you know if I selected the handle material its gona be beautiful!! The handles will be secured with 3 pins.
The blade specs are as follows.
240mm on the edge.
height will be approx. 49mm at the heel.
Blade thickness will be approx 2.5 mm above the heel tapering to the tip.
Overall length is approx 14.5"
Rounded spine and choil
Contoured Rosewood handle
This first batch will be numbered on the blades 1-100 and come with a certificate of authenticity with each knife.
Expected delivery Christmas 2013. But with production ya never really know. If this changes I will update this thread with new expected delivery dates. Yet L&G remain positive that delivery to me will be mid Dec. Making Christmas doable!
I will deliver these in the order in which I receive the deposits. If you have a request for a number. I will make it happen if its possible. Yet I have to give the first one to my wife. After that I will give them in the order in which the payment were received. unless a special request for say number 55 comes in B4 55 are sold then I will gladly substitute and make the change happen.
Pre order price on this will be.
$245.00 delivered in the USA
$240.00 + 25.00 delivered international.
Payment. Im gona do payments through PayPal. Its easiest for me to print labels and keep a accurate record of the sales and shipments.
To secure your order please send payments to firstname.lastname@example.org (Please dont send as a gift) This messes up my record keeping and could delay your shipment.
Knife pictures below are to represent the blade profile and handle style. I currently dont have a finished knife to show ya yet! But will have soon! You can count on it looking very similar to these knives with awesome Honduran rosewood handles. and 3 SS pins.
