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.

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

Thank you so much for the kind words. Mert's work is always top notch. :D
