    Holiday Treats

    I scheduled some extra time for store knives and other projects this holiday season. I will be offering a range of knives from very minimalist gyutos at lower price points to one or two high end pieces.
    There will be the occasional WIP photo here and a heads up what's headed for the store.
    If there are any knife type requests please let me know through this thread. Thanks for reading and here's my friendly cat:

    Well the obvious honyaki petty 170/180mm long. not iron wood handle but still a darker super sexy material exuding class. Maybe you use a nice piece of scrap damascus as a bolster, etched. Also maybe you email me before she goes up and it somehow pops up sold when it's posted.

    Oh. Yes. Eventually I would like to offer some crazy bread knives, but it's not going to happen for a while.

    Hey man! I can't fault you for trying, but that's a little of the specific side.

    Up to you lol, worse case september we all know I really want a honyaki petty. I suppose I'd settle for honyaki petty anything but iron wood

    Another cool idea might be forge a few 210/240 gyutos ministerial and let people pick handles $400/$450 handless and than + whatever for handles $150- infinity maybe do 2 in 52100 and offer honyaki for +$100 or whatever you think is fair. Basically semi customs but you could bang them out with a 15 minute fb chat or a few e-mails. As the only customisation would be handle materials and honyaki vs not honyaki.

    I'll second the idea of posting blades for sale, and then giving buyers some limited choice of woods/materials that you have on hand, with a simple/basic handle design so that the knife would be somewhat personalized for the buyer. And hopefully wouldn't be too much extra work for you.
