When I “discovered” Blenheimforge guys they were just rolling out their first production knives. I liked their work and asked whether they would make a knife based on my design (blade profile - intended to be used as a salami & cheese knife - it works great for that). They said yes and soon we were on it. The blade is forged and welded by hand. The core is Aogami #2 and the damascus is from iron and nickel. But since I have later got a custom knife from BloodrootBlades for the same purpose, it is time to let this one go.

EDIT (6th of August): German post does not offer anymore insurance with 'large letter' product and forces its customers to send items that need insurance as 'package'. This effectively means paying about 20€ more for effectively the same (just slower) service. This means that the price of the items as offered is shipped only within EU. Worldwide costs 20€ extra. I apologise for the inconvenience.

Price: 250€ —> 200€ shipped within EU, worldwide costs 20€ extra.

Payment: PayPal or wire transfer

Blade length: 146 mm
Blade height: 42 mm
Spine thickness:
- at the handle: 3.3 mm
- half way towards the tip: 2.1 mm
- 1 cm from the tip: 0.8
Weight: 122 g
Blade steel: Aogami#2 clad in nickel/iron damascus
Handle: bog oak
Balance point: Right in front of the handle (edge of the bolster)
Left/Right: this is right-handed ground blade with some asymmetry, possibly usable, but not optimal for a lefty (even if the choil shot would not suggest that)

Condition: the knife has been thinned by me and refinished only with a rust eraser, so the contrast is not super strong. Should the buyer be interested, than we can discuss refinishing. There is a local delamination in the damascus (see photos, some would say that it is a proof of hand forged damascus :p). It was there from the beginning and did not change over time.

A really sweet design and what looks to be a solid performer on board. Sad as I am left dominant.
