Well, there are afterisks after Christmas, as I won't be able to deliver these in time for opening them on Christmas day.
My heat treating oven went out in the most inopportune time - so I am just starting heat treating the blanks today (((
So here is what I can offer
I will have
4 x 150mm petty
4 x 180mm nakiri
4 x 225mm gyuto
4 x 250-285mm suji
4 x 70mm paring
These are priced at $1.5/mm if purchased 2+ with cocobolo or ziricote handles as standard option, or $1.65/mm if purchasing one knife. I also offer wood upgrade, at 20% discount on the wood but that would push the delivery time by 3 weeks, as that what it takes to get it back from stabilizing. This batch of wood has some spectacular koa, amboyna, thuya, mazur birch, buckeye and other choices. Blocks will be priced to market (AA to AAAA quality)
These knives will be thin convex ground and will come with octagonal handles. Masamoto-derived profile. I will produce a video to demonstrate the performance side by side with S-grind. So far, I am pretty pleased how the convex grind performs.
AEB-L is 62RC hard.
If interested, please post here and email me to reserve your sets. These are offered on first-come-first-served basis.
PS: I also offer these without handles, please contact me if you are interested in just the blades.
