Hey KKF,

This is for all of the cry babies who hate my bundles. Just kidding but I thought I'd keep it straight forward and offer some knives I need to move in order to balance the books after picking up a Rader.

All pricing listed below is shipped/insured in CONUS (international DM please but certainly welcome). Paypal G&S is cool but other payment methods accepted (DM for details).

Bidinger Chefs Knife B Grind, 230 x 59 mm, 195 grams, AEBL - $875 (Sold)
I convinced Dan to sell me this along with a gyuto version so I could try the different profiles. I ended up preferring the gyuto but this is an amazing knife

Black Lotus Gyuto, 212 x 57 mm, 192 grams, 1.2519/wrought iron folded with 15n20 - $875 $850 $800 $750
Grabbed this from the last newsletter drop. Super nice but just not long enough for my taste.

Milan K Tip S Grind Laser, 230 x 59 mm, 171 grams, 135cr3/soft steel - $725 $700 $650 (Sold)
Picked this up from Milan in September. The best S grinds Ive tried to date but Im off of lasers these days and prefer a bit more weight.

Tsourkan Suji, 280 x 40 mm, 213 grams, 52100 - $750 $700 (withdrawn)
Got this directly from Marko early this year. I love this knife but I just never reach for a suji at home. I'd rather have this go to someone who will put it to good use

Here’s the Bidinger packaged up for its trip. I’m vacuum sealing every knife after it’s been oiled and fitted with a rubber edge guard. Shipped in a padded case.

These high end knives definitely deserve it.

Tsourkan is withdrawn. I thought I could part with it but I’m already feeling that sellers remorse.


Milan - $675
BL - $825
I’ll throw in this Awatanii Koppa (paid $250 for it) if someone picks up the remaining 2 knives.

Great for polishing and could be used with the Milan which has stone finished bevels.

Size: 18 x 6 x 2.5 cm
Weight: 557 grams
