    Tsourkan Knives 15 cm 52100 honesuki

    This knife has managed to exceed every one of my expectations.

    Weight is 151 g. The edge is exactly 150 mm, and the OAL is 275 mm. The spine is 3.30 mm as it enters the guard/bolster, 3.20 mm over the heel and 1.95 mm at the point where the kiritsuke-style tip begins.

    It has a maple handle with blackwood accents (inspired by Michael Rader's work) and a brass guard/bolster.

    The back side of the blade is very subtly convexed, not flat.

    It is one of the finest examples of Marko's craftsmanship and attention to detail that I have had the pleasure to handle.

    Beautiful knives. Dave's petty knife profile is elegant and I totally love how his western handles look. That burl is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you're gonna get!

    Stefan handle on the Carter is slick.

    Very nice. Did you have to mess with it, thin it, etc or was it good to go?

    It's very usable OOTB, though it could be thinned a bit to improve performance.

    That carter takes my breath away. Mine is in desperate need of a refurb and new handle.

    Not a kitchen knife, but part of my collection.
