So, I offered to trade Mark at burlsource some wood for some finished blades awhile ago. Mark held up his end quite well, however I have been a bit slow on getting him his blades. So I decided it was time to get some blades to him and have a sale as well, and by the way send him some business.
I am offering 150mm pettys in AEB-L for $180, provided you get a block of wood from Mark and have him send it to me. These knives will have bolsters, and I will provide the material for bolsters(I have some african blackwood, but other woods make cool bolsters as well.) Now I normally charge $225 for these and the difference is a bit above what I normally allow for handle material, but Marks blocks are so large that there is usually some left over, and the leftovers I get to keep(I like to use these for bolsters).
I'll be starting these blades on Oct 29 and I should be shipping the first ones about a week after that.
In between now and then I will be finishing Marks blades and sending them out to Him.
Mark is a great guy and I do feel bad about taking so long, Mark start looking for a happy bundle from me later this week.
So for those who are interested, send me $90 to get the ball rolling and go have a look around Marks site, just make sure to include a note to have him ship the block to me(I do prefer to work with the stabilized stuff, but and of it will work).
I'm sure I have forgotten something so if you have questions, let me know.
I have included a pic of one I did awhile ago, these will have a slightly improved grid.
If for some reason you don't see anything that strikes your fancy with Mark, I do have a decent supply of materials myself and you can send me $100 as a deposit and contact me for what I have.
