Hello All,

I'm trying something new, a "build your own gyuto", if you will. Here I have this nice little MagnaCut blade that I completed yesterday, and I'm giving the prospective owner of this knife executive decision making power on how it's finished. Essentially making this a semi-custom. You get to pick the length of the neck, the blade finish, the POB, the handling style and the wood.

If you decide that a 320 grit finish and the "natural" POB is to your liking, and you opt for a plain or burned octagonal wood handle (oak, maple, cherry, walnut, ash) I'm thinking the base price should be $375 U.S (shipped). An upgraded blade finish, or higher grade of wood (ebony, stabilized amboyna, dyed maple burl -and I can get others), a more complex handle (recessed metal front spacer, stone spacers and so on), a specific POB (+/-) 5mm, will be at additional cost.

I just thought this would be something interesting to try here, maybe even fun. I hope you agree?

I'll have more MagnaCut blades coming in the next couple weeks. I've allocated this order of steel for 4x 240mm gyuto and 2x 290mm gyuto, but I could certainly be talked into other blade styles and lengths. It's a great steel to work with, and I will be using it more in the future.

Have an excellent day!

I know dyed woods aren't for everyone, but here's a sample of some of the blocks I have sitting on a shelf. Any of these could end up being the furniture for this blade if so desired.

If I hadn’t just purchased 2 of Your knives last month😍this would be top of the list, I am really wanting to feel some magna on the board and stones.
Thankfully the M4 is really hitting the spot.

The profile you’re using for gyutos is exceptional. Can’t wait for the next “left hand bias” descriptor
