Hey all,
Raising funds for tuition, round 2. This is one I'm much more reluctant to release, but must be done.

Balance is perfect at the pinch, handles is molded and comfortable in every way. Handle is fit so tight, it acts like a tuning fork when you tap the spine. Master smith work.

Used only to cut beef jerky, then cleaned of patina. Never sharpened, still shaving sharp.

258g, spine tapers smoothly to 1.63mm at the end of the hamon.

Comes with certificate of authenticity.

Cost $1,635 asking $1,325 shipped CONUS with insurance. Ships ASAP.
International shipping, let's talk.

On hell of a knife here. If I didn't already have a Lisch this would be a great pick up. Someone help with tuition!

I remember when he made and posted pics of this. I came soooo dang close to buying it. That handle looks wicked nice. Plus I really like the profile of this one too. David’s work is on another level, and that sculpted bolster is very comfy & funtional

It was incorrectly measured when first posted. Certificate reflects actual edge length. Maybe they were trying to do a 'sakai' measurement, we'll never know.
It's also described as "damascus". Maybe they just copied and pasted an earlier listing.

Going to give this one more shot at $1,225, then eBay I suppose.
Still open to partial trade offers as well.
Unused since the glamor shots were taken, no surprises.
