Hey KKF,

I would like to sell this Bazes. This was intended to stay in the line up as a gyuto/suji hybrid but I ended up pulling the trigger on a sujihiki. Bazes work is fantastic. This blade has beautiful suminagashi cladding that has developed a nice patina. With that said, I can remove the patina upon request. I have used this knife < 10 times, never sharpened or stropped. Here are the specs:

Edge length: 240 mm

Height: 52 mm

Weight: 194 grams

Steel: Blue 2, Iron Clad

Handle: Curly Black Walnut

Hrc: 63 - 64

Profile: Sanjo style, thick spine, not too much taper until you reach the very tip. Super thin BTE, convex designed for food release. This is a potato/protein slayer (ok on onions, too thick for squash)

Comes with padded case.

Asking $820 $800 shipped/insured CONUS, international DM please

Alex’s asymmetrical grind is one of the best in the game. Plus, the custom he made me had one of the best cutting feels I have ever experienced.

Here’s another choil shot. I didnt specify an asymmetric grind so I had to take another look at it. I think there is a low spot near the heel that is making it seem more asymmetric than it is. In use I could not tell a difference from my symmetric ground knives

EDIT: this has been confirmed as being asymmetric favoring right handers, sorry for the confusion on my part

Amazing, these custom knife makers do such an amazing job and the fact that you can get these knives customs I just feel the Japanese makers just can’t compete with that especially at the price points these knives are sold for
