    Well, gotta keep downsizing. More coming in than going out, so I need to rectify this. I'll preface the details by saying all of these are excellent, A+ knives. None of them are anything but amazing cutters in their own way. All are nail bending thin behind the edge. I'm pretty nuanced these days with what I want to keep, and these either aren't getting the use they should (one case), or have slight things that make me choose a different knife when the time comes (one case), or I've got more inbound from the same maker (two of the cases).

    1. SOLD Comet 260mm gyuto - rare beast in the wild here. amazing specs from Trey
    52100 monosteel
    Desert Ironwood and African Blackwood bolster, octo
    275 grams
    Heel at 61mm
    Blade at 260mm
    OAL at 413mm
    Asking $775 CONUS/$800 Int'l
    Distal Taper: 3.77mm at heel, 2.26 at 11cm from heel, 1.5mm at 3 cm from tip, 0.82mm at 1 cm from tip
    Unused since current edge put on by Kevin P (Murder Sharp, aka: kasumikev)

    2. SOLD Adam/Haley DeRosiers, M.S. 250mm French chefs knife - super unique, only one they've ever made with two mastersmith stamps, due to the fact that Haley forged the blade and Adam finished it during the late stages of her pregnancy. Includes case and paperwork with the story of the knife.
    250mm Gyuto
    Parkerized W2 blade
    Dyed maple birdseye maple burl western handle
    311 grams
    Heel at 61mm
    Blade at 255mm
    OAL at 388mm
    Asking $1,500 U.S./$1,525 Int'l
    Current edge put on by Kevin P (Murder Sharp, aka: kasumikev)

    3. Custom Carter/Muteki 253mm chefs knife by Taylor Shields
    Custom made for me by Taylor Shields
    Buckeye burl dyed handle with black G10 liners
    White 1/san mai stainless
    Weight 224 grams
    Heel at 57mm
    Blade at 253mm
    OAL 365mm
    Asking $550 CONUS, $575 Int'l
    This is a geometry Taylor and Alex Horn designed while working together at Carter. It's a great looking blade and crazy thin towards the tip. A really nice laser cutting knife but with a little more weight than some lasers

    4. Cris J. Anderson (CJA) 245mm Custom
    Nitro-V stainless, XXT (extra, extra tall in Cris' lingo)
    Std thickness
    Custom "root beer" stabilized maple handle
    216 grams
    Heel at 65mm
    Blade at 245mm
    OAL at 401mm
    Asking $1,125 CONUS, $1,150 Int'l

    Photos of the group below for reference. If folks want specifics on each knife, just let me know. Happy to describe geometries, grind, etc. Thanks!

    Forgot to mention: I'm open to trades or trades plus cash for certain knives (tall at the heel). Also, if someone wants two, I'll give a nice cut to pricing.

    If anyone has any doubts the seller is an class act. I would have no problem buying an expensive knife from him.
