    Hunter Valley Blade in 52100 - Workhorse 240mm
    Only had an initial sharpening then prepping a meal or 2 and there's some patina developed. I can remove the patina upon request.
    Amazing food release, thick spine, tapered from about 2cm at the tips and solid specs. Too much of a beast for me.


    Edge Length: 240mm

    Blade Height: 54mm

    Handle Material: Bocote


    $450 + shipping

    That Tansu at this price is a freaking homerun. If I didn’t already have one that’s practically identical to this one I’d be all over it. In fact I’ve already thought about grabbing it still. This one looks to be more of a laser than my “wh” version

    These are all awesome knives. If I didn't just buy a suji I'd be all over the doi.

    Sorry I forgot to labels. it's 52100. This line is quiet hefty, great cutter regardless.

    That's an insane deal for a western Tansu, even if it is his earlier work...

    This 240 HVB has been pulling at me since day 1. But it being a 240 big boy is the only thing that stopped me.
    Just got a 230 on Friday, these knives are seriously amazing works by Mert. Though this one here has the cooler logo.
    Knowing what I know now about these blades, I’m even More shocked this one hasn’t sold yet. The price is on point
