    Another knife for sale! I went monosteel on this one, RWL-34 heat treated to around 61-62HRC. The grind is kind of a workhorse towards the heel with a significant distal taper, but still chunky, if that makes sense.
    • 230mm length
    • 49mm height
    • 230grams
    • Spine thickness - 3mm at the handle, 2.7mm above the heel, 1.75mm midway, 0.75mm at 1cm from the tip.
    • Handle - Stabilised maple burl handle, copper spacer and dyed snakeskin sycamore ferrule

    Asking $250 + shipping from the UK. If you don't like it I'll take it back. Please ask any questions you like!

    Someone should have grabbed this knife already, it is a steal at the price. For people who may be unfamiliar RWL-34 is essentially the same steel as CPM 154 and I'm not aware of anyone doing work this nice with that alloy that isn't charging at least 50% more. Properly heat treated it should be relatively tough/non-chippy, with excellent edge retention, and not a bear to sharpen, although more work than Shirogami or Aogami 2.
