    So who's going to be first to get a Martell knife in 52100?


    BTW, since I don't know the costs to work this steel yet I'm going to intially price 52100 the same as O1. This means the initial 52100 knives will likely be less expensive than they will eventually end up being. Book now and save....Hint hint!

    Hey Dave, I'm in for a gyuto. What woods are available or did you have a combo in mind?

    52100... I had a ZK once which was an odd profile with a clumsy handle but the grind was awesome and so was the steel. 2 forum makers are also renowned for their 52100, so, Dave, 52100 would be the only alternative for my placed order for a CPM-154. I will leave the decision up to you! Do whatever you want!

    Start a "help me design my Martell" thread?
    You may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful knife
    You may ask yourself, well, how did I get here?

    Make low layer count damascus from them, say there ya go, as the 52100 patinas the pattern will become apparent, that would be super cool

    Not necessary, I know what I want. When I ordered my CPM-154 gyuto from Dave, 52100 was not available. Now it is and Dave is apparently looking for potential customers. If he wants to do 52100 instead of CPM-154, I am fine with it. I am fine with whatever Dave does!

    Anyone interested please contact me directly so we can make plans, I only ask for a 50% deposit up front.

    *Note - as mentioned up thread, I will likely be charging more for this steel once all the costs come in, now is the time to secure the pricing.

    Feel free to reach out with your questions.

    Dave
