    FS Shig yo 240; TC blade single bevel - custom handles

    TC Blade 245mm with custom handle and custom saya
    Single bevel, Kurochi finish
    Super thin at the edge, takes a very sharp edge.
    Spine: 1.7MM at heel; 1.6MM at tip above bevel

    Custom handle: Stabilized Koa body, African Blackwood ferrule and butt cap, Water Buffalo Bone spacers

    $450 shipped


    Shig Yo with custom handle
    240MM; 56MM height at heel
    Spine: 2.9MM at heel; .8MM at tip
    Custom Handle: dyed maple, perfect FF
    This thing has an amazing grind and it's the best Shig I've had out of 4 at this size
    Work invested: Blade has been thinned, refinished and it's close to new

    $925 shipped

    For what it's worth, Tslil does some of the cleanest work you're going to see. His knives are fantastic, in hand.
