I would like to announce a prebuy for my 240+mm(usually 245mm) O-1 or AEB-L gyutos
They will be made from 2mm stock (AEB-L may be slightly thicker) with the convex grind I have been working on.
I want to say that these knives have an improved profile with less belly than my previous damascus gyutos and since they are convex grind rather than full flat grind they will not have the flex that some of those knives had. These are designed to be high performance cutters with a fine finish to the blade(hand sanded) and my usual excellent handles. Handle materials can be from my considerable selection of stabilized woods or selected from other sources. Some materials may not be suitable for handles or may be used at an increased price. The deposit will be half of the cost of the finished knife. I will be offering 2 different profiles for this prebuy, my standard, which is the top proflie in the first pic and a narrower profile for those who like a gyuto that is less tall, which is the middle profile.
Please pm me for price and if you want to participate.
I intend to begin making these knives on October 15, this will allow time for me to stock materials and to finish projects I have in the works now.
The second pic if of the #1 profile knife finished.

The cost for these including domestic shipping is $430, with a deposit of $215 for either the O-1 or the AEB-L

Thanks,
Del

One of the things I am considering as an option for the first dozen or so of these knives is a copper and sterling silver mokume pin rather than the mosaic pins I am using now. I have not made any of the mokume up, so I will have to do that first, but haw do you guys feel about that?

That sounds really cool! I know my wallet won't be happy about it, but I may have to inquire about one of these....

Something that I forgot to mention and has come up a couple of times in PM. The mokume pin is a no-cost upgrade at this time, but in the future(if I offer it) there will be a premium.
Thanks,
Del

Is this a numbered limited run or are you making how ever many get ordered?

For you that read the previous post here, I decided to make a change. I am going to make these a limited run and I may even number them. There will only be 12 in this run.
Thanks,
Del

For the record, I think numbering the blades would be cool. :D

I have decided to extend this until the 15th, for those of you that missed the 30th.
Thanks,
