Thread: Martell 240mm Gyuto with Stefan Keller Wa Handle

    Martell 240mm Gyuto with Stefan Keller Wa Handle

    This one is available in stock ready to go!

    Here's my first (finished) wa handled gyuto. I installed a Stefan Keller "Off The Shelf" handle (in bird's eye maple & blackwood) on this one and I like the results.

    This has to be the thinnest ground knife I've done so far so if your thing is a laser wa with a flattish profile then this should fit the bill well. To whomever buys this one, please be careful when handling it, she's crazy sharp and looking to bite.

    Please see Dave Martell 240mm Gyuto with Stefan Keller Wa Handle for details.

    Looks awesome! Is that one a bit taller at the heel or is it just the perspective?
    I got a chance to play with Karring's Martell blade w/ western Dave handle last weekend and WOW what a knife... Perhaps the best all-rounder I've ever used. Normally I wouldn't think twice about lusting after a Keller Wa over a western, but your western design is really elegant and unique. I have never seen a handle that fits a wide range of different hand sizes /shapes so well.

    I think that the only sensible thing to do is but one of each... I've still got too many projects in the queue that need payed off, but after last weekend your knives are very high on the next list.

    Thanks guys, you're too kind.

    @Justin, the heel height is the same as the westerns, the profile is identical actually. Thanks for the encouraging words.
