    Cool Practice Knives Sale

    I have accumulated a few knives that I ground for practice. I will be selling them at a discount. I have several gyuto, sujis and a few smaller knives. Pm me if interested.

    Just wanted to clarify a few things.

    All knives are in 52100.

    I will regrind and reprofile all of the practice knives to give them profiles I settled on for my custom knives, and to tune up the geometry to reflect the feedback I got from a few people who handled my knives.

    None of these have faulty heat treatment, though a few of them have experimental heat treatment (they will have more wear resistance) that will require a little more time on the stones, but edge retention will be better. If there is any defect I know of, I will describe it to the buyer before the purchase is finalized.

    None of these will have my maker's mark etched on them, to prevent the mixup with custom knives later, should they hit the second-hand market.

    All will come with 100% satisfaction guaranteed, but will have to be returned within a week and not be sharpened and have to be in a condition received, though you may cut with them to get a feel of geometry.

    I am trying recoup some of the cost to offset workshop overhead, material cost, and knife-making supplies cost I incurred.

    Thanks everybody who contacted me. I wish I had enough knives for everybody interested, but for what I have, I went by first-come-first-served. I will respond to everybody, once I sort out who wants what.

    I am a bit slow with regrinding and refinishing practice knives, as I have to do it in tandem with regular orders, but this is to confirm that I will be doing those and I will be in touch with everybody I contacted back in October.

    This is the first practice knife that I reground and refinished.
    52100 with Lignum Vitae/Buffalo Horn handle.
    225mm on the edge.
    160g.
    Hand finished.

    I have to say that all practice knives that I had were bespoken back in October, so I don't have any new at this time.
