This was my wife's primary knife until I bought that Takeda Bunka, and she hasn't touched this one since. This is the Kurouchi stainless clad blue steel from his pro line of knives. She is pretty hard on knives and most of the KU has been scrubbed off, it is dull, and has a couple chips. I thought I would offer the potential buyer a handle option. One handle is Buffalo horn, Honduran Rosewood Spacer, and Green Camel Bone ferrule. The other is spalted something I don't remember from Craig Stevens, nickle and fiber spacer, ebony ferrule. This knife is currently retailing for $230.00 considering its heavily used condition I am going to ask $135.00+ $40.00 to cover the cost of materials for the handle, delivered in conUS.

Well, a lot of our stuff stays within the community doesn't it? :)

Okay, so the official record still stands at 9 minutes ;) 15 is still pretty darn good though...

Got it done I used some malachite dust to color the epoxy and it turned out a little brighter than I thought. So I just wanted to get Ben's approval before I ship it

Yeah, I can see the concern. It might be too nice to sell. I say refund Ben's money and keep it for yourself!

yeah, that's awful: it should be sent to me for 5 or 6 years of evaluation.
