Iron clad Hitachi blue from a brilliant knife maker. Love this knife, but gotta make room for something new. Never been sharpened. Seen a leather strop only on one occasion. Cut dozen pork loins and 6-8 tuna steaks. Razor sharp, bit of pretty patina. Pics are from original post and couple from now.


205 mm long (37 mm tall at heel) in iron-clad Hitachi blue steel, copper heirloom fit cap, and padauk handle.

Reduced to $750 which includes shipping CONUS. Price drop from $900. Will consider trade for US and Euro makers.

Alex is one of the most authentic and purist makers with spectacular pieces. One must truly experience his art to truly appreciate it. Best of luck…

I don’t solder my bolsters, so there isn’t a metallic bond with the blade. I use marine grade epoxy during glue up, which coats the inside of the bolster/where it meets the blade, which effectively insulates them (I hope!). I haven’t heard any cases of galvanic corrosion on these yet!

Wow. From the maker himself. It’s a great knife. I loved using it. I just want it to find a good home.

That’s a beauty. Do you consider it a chef or more of a slicer?

It’s kind of a hybrid due to heel height. You can use as a slicer/small chef. It’s super light and agile and of course it’s very sharp. I love it. I just need to make room for another knife I just got my hands on. But if don’t sell it I’m okay with that too because there is nothing I don’t like about it.
