I found a few more thing siting around unused
1) 2001-EDOL Evolution Deluxe 18 pc. Knife Case. The olive green one with full Accessory Compartment with 5 exterior pockets.
It as good as new, I loaded it up once took it to work and then remembered I hate carrying my knives around with me. I can post a pic if you like but trust me it's still stiff and new with no nicks or cuts. They sell for about $80, so I'd take $60 shipped
2) Murray Carter Fukugo-zai Series Sujihiki (7.8 sun/ 237mm/ 9 3/8") with custom black palm and blood wood handle. Here's the thing, by luck this knife and handle combo were a match made in heaven! I mean I get chills every time I pick it up, light as a feather and perfect balance. Why sell it you may ask, good question. I bought the knife, it was my 1st Carter. The handle was so horrible I could/ would not use it. So I got a new handle from Stefan and by the time I got it and had it put on I hade my Burke Suji in hand, so it's gone unused for something like 3 years now. I love the knife but hate the idea that I'm collecting draw queens, so to a good home I would be happy to see it go. The knife was 3 and change new 350ish with shipping if I remember? The handle I think was 140+ shipping and install so that makes for a $500.00 knife new. Seeing as it's better then new and the heavens blessed this knife with luck I'm not willing to take a loss parting with it so $500.00 or I keep it. I will gladly take this knife back if you dont love it and find it worth every penny.
Similar story as above another great knife but I haven't used it in so lone it seems a shame having it .
Wathanabe 320mm Sakimaru, 532.00 blue steel, Stefan handle. Note on handle: Madagascar rose wood, koa, mammoth bone & copper spacers. This is one of my favorite handles, I think many would agree, I think a picture of it is still on the front page of his sight. Knife was about 500 new handle was $200ish makes for a $700.00 knife. However unlike the Carter this knife is used still in mint shape but I used it for a year or more and sharpened it a few times. I put a nice j-nat edge and finish to it before I stock it in the draw so great knife at a great price $600.00 shipped.
Aritsugu A type 270mm Yanagi
Ok here's the deal with this one. I needed/ wanted a stainless Yanagi for work but they all sucked! I got this one and thought it sucked at first too. But it just fell into the category of Aritsugu A type come dull. I spent god only knows how many hours sharpening this thing as the steel is hard as hell. What I was left with was a great sharp as hell knife with a almost mirror finish. But then I got my Heiji SS and have not used the knife since. So the knife is used and sharpened, which I only think "finished" the knife were the Aritsugu left off. Knife was somewhere around 300 new, think it was 280+ shipping. So I'll let it go for $200.00. I can't find a pic of it but I'll take some today and post them.
Think I have some more stuff to post up but I got to go to work now so
To be continued.
I'm inclined to give a lot of slack on spelling and grammar, but the site does provide a spell checker....
But, "use it or louse it sale" - come on (louse is, technically, spelled correctly but I doubt that's what Colin intended). At least make an effort - it's not that hard.
