CPM154 Gyuto w/ Tasmanian Blackwood

1 post in this topic

I know you guys are gonna hate me because this isn't forged but...sometimes a high quality stainless blade is what you need B)
Anyways I am very proud of this and I hope you guys enjoy it!
Blade: ~7" (177.8mm) cutting edge with CPM154 stainless heat treated by Matthew Gregory (thanks man!) and it is about 2" (50mm)  tall allowing for plant of knuckle clearance. I used 0.1" (2.5mm) thick stock and it tapers down to a needle point and the edge is almost at zero. The spine and choil are crowned for comfort.
Handle:Wa handle style about 5.125" long (130mm). The bolster is made from black paper micarta to mimic buffalo horn but have complete water resistance. The body portion of the handle is made from a beautiful piece of stabilized curly Tasmanian Blackwood. This stuff looks sort of like Goa wood and the amount of chatoyance it exhibits really is something to admire. Simply put it's a gorgeous piece of wood. 
Overall this knife is ~12.25" or 311mm
Price: I am asking $500 plus shipping which will probably be done via USPS.
and now for some pictures!
