    I’m selling this knife, never been used. Kippington Honyaki, light grind, edge is 245, heel is 53. The knife has a custom Koa handle with a African Blackwood ferrule, one of the best handles I’ve personally had done, workmanship and install are on point. There are some very small micro scratches that can be seen in the last pic. Hard to even notice. Why Am I selling, gonna get that exact same knife but just a tad stouter. I have three of his blades and he’s one my my favs.

    I’m asking 625.00 shipped priority.

    Is the "light grind" the laser honyaki or more towards the workhorse?

    Could I trouble you for choil shot? Also, how much flex is there to the blade, if any? Thanks

    The flex isn’t bad. There is some but a small amount. Here’s the choil shot.
