    Hi!

    Looking to let these 2 beauties go, a Xerxes Primus Gyuto 230mm and a Xerxes Primus Petty 120mm. Both are in real good shape but as you can see on the pictures, the patina of the gyuto was removed. Maybe one can bring it back by forcing a patina with instant coffee or something like that. The Gyuto comes with a saya made of ringed maple.

    I guess I don't have to say much about the knives, those are great cutters and have the most comfortable handles I have ever seen. The last Primi were made in 2018 and I don't know if they are made again (but to be honest, I think there will be a new batch someday in the future)

    I am letting them go because I am a little bit saturated by Xerxes knives, though they are great knives, I owned a couple customs as well and just want to find out, what else is out there. Therefore I am only interested in trades at the moment. I am looking for western customs, e.g. Dalman, Comet, Halcyon Forge, Kippington, something like that (would prefer workhorse grinds). But of course you can make other suggestions as well. But please no Catchesides or Raquins, not my style.

    Trade value is 800$. Knives are currently in Austria, Europe, willing to ship overseas, depending on the offered knives.

    Here are the pictures:

    If there are any questions, just send me a pn.

    Thanks,
    Mack.

    Killer set. Really dig the Primus gyutos. Haven’t used anything else he’s made, yet. His work in general looks pretty sweet though. But the santoku and gyuto I have from the primus series are very spot on

    I’ll take the petty if you consider a separate trade or outright sale.

    But I can understand if you want to keep them together and trade only. Let me know!

    The handle design on these is just perfect. The Primus gyuto I had was so comfy in a pinch grip.

    I did receive some interesting offers, but nothing that flashed me enough to let the set go. So I am still open to trade offers.

    Thanks,

    Mack.

    Not at the moment, thanks. If I ever change my mind, I'll contact you.

    Open to sell now as well. 800$ all in in the EU, 820$ worldwide.

    But I am still listening to trade offers.

    Best,
