    Christmas** Gift Sets For Sale - Reservation

    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.

    Thank you.

    Marko

    PS: I also offer these without handles, please contact me if you are interested in just the blades.

    These will be octagonal with ground radiuses. I can do a metal spacer or a white contrasting spacer.

    Knives that are not reserved, will go on the web site or I will send them to Australian partner.

    Thanks.

    If I were to reserve a nakiri and a petty, what would the price difference be on adding amboyna? Or buckeye?

    I can't tell the prices off the bat, as there are several blocks of each type, however these will be priced comparable to other vendors' stuff, and will be priced to market. 20% discount on the blocks is still on the table, if going the custom wood route.
