    For Sale - Martell 270mm CPM154 Gyuto

    Stats

    Length - 270mm

    Height (at heel) - 60mm (ish)

    Steel - CPM-154 (Crucible Particle Metallurgy aka stainless powdered steel)

    Hardness - Rc61-62

    Handle Style - Yo (hidden tang western)

    Handle Materials - Metal (copper) bolster, premium grade Thuya burl, copper/G10 spacers, & copper/nickel silver mosaic pin



    This handle is a BIG upgrade to what I normally offer.

    I've maybe only made a few metal bolstered knives yet never one in copper. In fact, copper is rarely seen used as a bolster material by any maker, and for good reason - it sucks - to work with, but damn can it look special if done right. I'm currently at the point of shaping the bolster and mounting the wood, and this takes time, no rushing here. And speaking of the wood, this thuya burl was supplied by Mark at BurlSource who mentioned at the time (years ago) that this was some of the best thuya burl he'd ever seen and based on my interweb searches I've come to believe that it's a rare thing to find in this quality.

    This knife is the first example of a new level of work I plan to provide and is priced accordingly.


    *Note -This knife is not finished but it is 60% of the way there. If you're interested, and wish to buy it now, I'll discount the price by $25. If you'd prefer to wait and see what she looks like before purchasing that's OK fine by me too, just shoot me a PM and I'll put your name down for first refusal, and so on. Just please understand that should someone else wish to purchase the knife in the meantime (before it's made) I will sell it without consulting you. I'm trying to be as fair as possible, hope you can understand.



    Price - $825 (shipping included to USA / International will pay all costs over $25)



    If you're interested in purchasing this knife please contact via PM or email along with your Paypal email address (for the invoice). If international, please specify country.

    Thanks for looking!

    Dave
