I will add photos with the geometry of the blade. If you have any suggestions regarding the price, then I am ready to listen to them in private messages, I often go to meet my customers;)

This is an awesome knife, and I understand the price considering the material costs and insane labor involved for such a difficult steel. In that respect the price is entirely fair. But you might want to keep this one up your back pocket until you sell a few more standard knives proving your reputation. The asking price is approaching very well respected knife makers that have proven their geometries/heat-treat beyond doubt. Your knives look great (I've bought one) but you may need to raise your profile first.

Sorry if this breaks the rules. Andrei, I'll remove this comment if you message me.

i think the pricing is fair with regards to the materials used and also the work needed to process the materials. this is not white 2 with a magnolia/ho wood handle.

vanadis 10 would be on the order of about 100 times slower/more belt consuming to grind than white 2, or so. and a lot harder/more expensive to HT... and snakewood is the most expensive wood in the world pretty much. 3-5 times more expensive than other premium wood.

I'm glad you liked my knife ...
The timing of the knife is 2-3 months.

I'm still waiting for my orders from andrei but I had the chance to use a friend's knife. His fit and finish is very high, the steels he works with are crazy and his grinds are spot on. In my personal opinion, he's the best value custom maker out there right now. Someone looking for edge retention should jump on this.
