Hey, KKF! Recently landed a huge unicorn and need to backfund the sale, all these knives have only seen one or two test cuts then they were put away.

First up (bottom to top), Majime Limited Edition. This is from the first run. Purchased for $500, looking for same. Url for specs Majime SOLD

Next, Orzel Knives 215x57 mm gyuto. 52100 and nickel san mai with a red mallee burl handle. Great cutter from a young Australian maker, just not getting the love it deserves. I paid $700, looking for $650. $620 $590 $550 $525 $500

Finally, a Hendrik Max 205x55mm cu mai gyuto in 52100 and copper. Handle is yorrel burl with some ebony and copper accents. Bought for $550, selling for $525 $500 $470 $450 $425 SOLD

Specific pics coming in follow up comment. Also, if you're interested in more than one, let me know, I'll cut a deal.

Edit: also willing to entertain reasonable offers. I know these are lesser known makers around these parts so it's only fair.
Edit 2: Sill accepting offers, but lowering my asking prices a bit to encourage these to move.

I admit that I am tempted. Maybe you could share a background story?

Yeah, sure! His insta is definitely worth checking out.

I reached out after ogling his work for a while. He's one of those makers that's just so excited to design and build something. We went back and for and landed on this psuedo-French style with a lot of height and a fairly aggressive taper.

The blade is thin behind the edge, with plenty of meat plough through whatever needs cutting.

As far as why I'm selling it, I managed to get my hands on some of the expensive knives that folks here really rave about (Yanick, The 9, etc.) And it's really hard not to always reach for those. So when it came to thinning the herd I had to make those hard cuts.

Hope that answers any questions you had, happy to share more.
 
Not really. The Scheepersbuilt I have was already such a better performer (that I got cheaper cause I was kinda early to that party), it wasn't worth the effort.
Yes, I have seen these knives (Scheepersbuilt), but theyer are not putting them out at the moment. Would be interesting to compare the food release and cutting performance. Let me know if you have an opinion here.

The one I have is a relatively small bunka, I think a bit shorter both in length and height than the Majime. But cutting performance out of the box was great and maintaining the edge was crazy easy. As far as release goes, I only ever had issues with the stickiest stuff or really fine minces of onion or similar
