    FS- Catcheside Summer oddballs sale!

    Hello all, while I'm busy on commissions no Utility line and monos have been made from me for a while, no time to make them just at the moment! So I have finished up a few that were left behind for one reason or another or have slight visual imperfections.
    I will be offering these at a forum only discount over the next couple of weeks.


    First up!! 180mm san mai Gyuto
    This one slipped through the net as was a tad short for a commission.
    It was forged a couple of years ago, it is more in line with my older profile, in san mai of plain steel and blue paper 2.
    Nice forging with good thickness entering the handle and a nice taper, super thin at the edge. I have finished it with a chunky utility line handle that fills the hand well.

    Blade length - 185mm height 45mm Balance on choil.
    Thickness over heel - 4mm

    If you are looking for a smaller Gyuto, this will be an excellent workhorse with fine geometry.

    I used my old logo in keeping with when it was forged out.

    Comes with knife bag and certificate

    Pictures...




















    Price £260 all in, PM me for conformation of availability and paypal details.

    Will get pics of the other blades early next week, there is a stainless san mai Suji, two white 1 core san mai Suji and a large damascus/san mai Gyuto coming up.

    Thanks All

    Will

    A couple of special oddballs for you now in San mai/damascus for near the price of mono steel!

    First off a stainless san mai Suji, great little line knife size. 230mm 42mm height. About 3.8mm over the heel, zero flex, wicked taper and convex grind. Core steel is 01. Why did this one get put aside - Well I added a few extra layers of contrasting layers next to the core, but got the layers the wrong way round on one side so it just blends with the cladding So the view does not match, but both views are very nice

    This one is dressed with a maple handle with simple cow horn spacer.













    Price is £380 all in.

    Next up is a big damascus clad Suji. This was an old blank put aside because there were a few marks in the damascus and the core was slightly off centre. The grind is recent, it is convex for the last half inch and slightly hollow from there to the spine, the marks disappeared during hollow grinding

    Core material is 01 clad with carbon damascus. Blade is 295mm 45mm height again around 3.8mm over the heel, hollow/convex geometry, see heel shot. The handle is Maple with blue spacer and desert ironwood burl ferrule.





















    Price on this one is £440 all in

    These are both sharp and ready to go as before Pm me for conformation and payment as these are forum only

    Thanks All

    Will

    I know if I had some extra $$$ I'd be all over this.
