    Petties coming available - need your help!




    I'm just about to start making 4 - 160mm petties and I'm having a hard time deciding on what combos to make so here I am asking you what you want.


    I know what woods I'm going to use, I've got spalted maple & yellow/brown/blue dyed box elder burl blocks set aside already.

    What I'm trying to figure out is what steels to go with (carbon O1 or stainless CPM154), if I should go wa or western, and what bolster materials to use.

    I'm thinking that maybe some of you might be interested in these knives, and if so you could claim them and then pick which combo best suits you prior to me guessing and doing what I think is best. If you help me I'll return the favor and reduce the costs by discounting each knife. See details below....



    I want to start work on these knives immediately.... No wait time folks!




    Steel Choices

    O1 - $299

    CPM154 - $329




    Handle Configuration Choices

    Western (hidden tang only)

    Wa Oval

    Wa octagonal




    Wood Choices

    Spalted Maple

    Yellow Dyed Box Elder Burl

    Brown Dyed Box Elder Burl

    Blue Dyed Box Elder Burl




    Ferrule/Bolster Material Choices

    Kingwood

    Black Buffalo + $15

    Blonde Buffalo + $20

    *Note - if you have another wood type that you're thinking about please ask as I have many types of small cut off blocks and likely have what you're looking for.




    Metal Spacers

    - Nickel silver, copper, or G10 (in various thicknesses - mostly thin & various colors)

    - Sorry no metal/horn combos as horn always shrinks and shows sharp edges of metal spacer.





    Shipping

    Included in USA only




    Purchasing

    Please contact through PM or email if interested in purchasing.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    I do them just like I do a gyuto. Convex but two large grinds, the bevel on the bottom and flatter up near the spine, blended together.

    You can sort of see the grind in this picture, the reflections....

    Are they super thin behind the edge or a bit more robust? Debating one of these as really want a stainless petty the wife can use as well. She is hesitant going for carbon one

    As thin as I can make them at the edge, that's how I'd describe them. I could make it more robust if that's what's desired.

    Just do it! The stainless petty prob has enough wear resistance to be wife proof even with thin grind!
