    Selling my 125sc honyaki by Evan. I have a new custom set (gyuto, petty) that will be coming, so I'm going to move this in advance of their arrival.

    For better or worse, a month ago I had Evan rehandle it and make a custom saya for it. Beautiful work; the handle is Olive wood and the saya is fumed oak. The handle is a D handle, left orientation, but the blade is a 50/50 grind. Any lefty folks out there looking for a good deal on Evan's work, this is an opportunity. The knife is used and sharpened, but geometry is unchanged. I can clean the nice patina that has built up on it is preferred. Some nice banding is showing through still.

    Asking $625 delivered CONUS or $650 international delivered.

    Specs are:
    D handle, Olive wood, black buffalo horn ferrule
    Weight @ 227 grams
    Heel @ 55mm
    Blade @ 255mm
    OAL @ 413mm

    Photos below.

    I have a softspot for olive wood. Great figure in that piece. Is it possible to get a pic of the entire knife and handle in one shot? Choil would be useful too.

    That handle is beautiful. I'm a righty and actually love a left-handed D handle. They seem to fit my hand better. If this blade wasn't so long, I'd be all over this. Good luck - gorgeous knife!

    Hey folks, adding a photo of the spine, so ya'll can see the distal taper. Really nice taper on this knife. Also, adding that the handle is glued on, as best I can tell. Thus, if you are a righty and want to change it around, you'll need to consider that. For those lucky few that are lefty like me, this is really to rock and roll.

    Same. I’m sure I’ll regret not pulling the trigger.
