Thread: Martell 300mm Sujihiki with Stefan Keller Wa Handle - SALE!

  1. #1

    Martell 300mm Sujihiki with Stefan Keller Wa Handle - SALE!

    This is a 2nd quality SALE!

    This knife has been in the works for sometime now at about 3/4 done. I just decided to throw a Stefan handle on it and finish it up.



    The ferrule has a slight check on the bottom side that is more of a visual issue than it is performance issue at all. I show this check in one of the pictures blown up that makes it appear much worse than it is in real life. To the touch I care barely feel it with a fingernail. This handle has been filled in with T-88 structural epoxy and will not give way so please don't be discouraged by this if you are interested in the knife.

    Also worth noting is that this is a fairly thin ground knife. The first 1/3 (from tip in) is thinner than I usually grind and even though the blade in convex I'd call this one a laser. It will indeed handle delicate slicing tasks. I actually envision this knife as a decent substitute for someone who does the sashimi thing and doesn't want to get involved with a yanagi.


    Please see Dave Martell 300mm Sujihiki with Stefan Keller Wa Handle for details.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    PS - Just because it's a 2nd doesn't mean that I won;t back this knife up like any other because I will. I only mention the issues for full disclosure and to offer a discount.

    I tried to shoot the spine but I couldn't get a focused shot - it was a very frustrating endeavor.

    Here's the measurements at the spine starting at the handle, then middle, then the tip (before the drop)....
    2.0mm - 1.5mm - 0.6mm

    Why say "no" when it feels so good to say "yes"?

    I had a question about ordering another one of these knives with a wa (made to custom spec) handle and how long this would take to get done. My answer is I don't know....I have 15 knives on order plus at least 2 dozen rehandles on deck right now here in the building waiting and more on the way, plus Stefan re-handles, then there's my normal sharpening business, and then there's getting Stefan to make the wa handle for us.

    To be realistic, I'd say that if you're interested in a wa suji from me this is the only one that I can provide for quite awhile and it's already built, sharpened, and ready to go. Wink wink
