Steel by Lundbergs 282mm x 58mm uddeholm 26c3 with desert ironwood handle with buffalo horn ferrule and tin spacers.
HRC 63-64
Flat grind with slight convex edge.
Thickness:
at handle 4mm
middle of blade 2.5mm
1 cm from tip 0.4mm
248 grams
balance point in front of maker's mark.

This has to be one of the best bargains I've picked up in a long time. Steel by Lundbergs is a very reasonably priced Swedish maker and the knife was offered at a discount because it had some hamon like spots on the mono steel blade as well as some roughness to the horn ferrule. I think it adds character. To top it off, the handle is made with desert ironwood which is one of my favorite wood.
Definitely another Swedish maker to keep your eyes on.

What a way to start the néw year - it’s an incredibly beautiful knife - and a great deal in pricing on top

The fit, finish, and handle all looks amazing

Would love to hear more

Kagekiyo 240mm blue 1 damascus wide bevel gyuto with octagonal ebony handle with brass ferrule and endcap
Hrc: 64+
Weight: 267g
Full length: 384mm
Blade length: 230mm
Height at heel: 50mm
Thickness at heel: 3.9mm
Thickness 1cm from tip: 1mm

Bought this gorgeous blade from KTH in Hong Kong. Normally people worry about the ebony handle being slippery when wet but the brass ferrule and endcap add a slight bit of roughness to prevent that. Top notch fit and finish. Great knife and free local shipping for me. What more could I ask for?

Cool that you snagged this one. I thought it was strange that it did not get sold quicker. Looks so sweet.

This is a gorgeous knife from an amazing Swedish maker. I am hoping I can get my grubby little paws on a Marius Smide soon!
