    Here's a 225mm Martell gyuto that's bound for Australia. Made out of CPM-154 steel with a handle constructed of "Licorice Twist" poly with a G10 ferrule. :cool:

    Price Increase Coming - Chance to Save $$$ on Martell Knives

    Hi everyone, It's been a while since I posted in my forum, just a busy person these days. And yet as busy as I am I'm finding it ever more difficult to turn a profit with the crazy rising costs of materials/consumables, as well as the increased communication times, and a stagnated pricing...

    You're not going to like what I have to say about rehandling those knives :oops: Thanks for the kind words though!

    Thanks! I really love figured maple, I wish I could talk more people into letting me use it. Not only is it inexpensive, from a maker's perspective it works nice, it's strong, and looks great often giving more movement (chatoyance?) than wood that costs three times as much. It can also be dyed...

    This new handle is made from a highly figured maple, streaked buffalo horn, and G10 spacers. It's mounted on an older Martell petty that was accidentally dropped on the floor and had it's original handle break in half. Hopefully this new one will have better luck in it's future. 😜

    I've been doing customs for some time now but when I can I'll have knives at either my site or at DistrictCutlery.

    Today I've got a 160mm nakiri to share that has a brand new handle I just made for it. :) The handle's wood is a really nice piece amboyna burl that was selected by the customer and is attached to a buffalo horn ferrule along with nickel silver/copper/G10 spacers. As you can see in the...

    Wa Handle Construction - Martell Knives

    Today I was putting together a handle that's going to be mounted onto a small 160mm nakiri that has a pretty small tang. Because the tang is so small, and the handle will not be large, I decided to use only a single 3/8" dowel for internal support. This brought up yet another issue that I had...

    Really nice work on this handle. I LOVE how the green layers are laid out and how they really "POP"!
