    Yuna Stag 'Assasin'• Elishewitz Carbon/Ti 'Pirate'


    ADVERTISEMENT
    BOTH SOLD

    Hi Guys,

    Yuna Knives (Trisak) has been making knives for about ten years, and has really gotten a following. This model was one of his earliest variations of his popular 'Assasin' model, and it sports some beautiful stag and ironwood, in his typical merged style. It has a large brass insert for strengtheninng the pivot area, and the blade is sharper than ANY other knife in my collection. Duplex grind: Hollow and Bevel. It's crazy sharp.

    It has his original friction closing design, in that there is not a detent ball, but it draws in tight and safely holds firm in the closed position. This is how he made them. Great full lockup, perfect centering.

    Blade: 4.25"/OAL: 9.25" (It's a LARGE folder.)

    Mint condition: Unused, uncarried, as rec'd from the maker.

    Back up again: Price: $395 (SOLD) (Shipping US included, Paypal preferred - NO fee.)



    I'll include the provided stingray belt pouch, too!



    Allen Elishewitz 'Pirate' folder:

    Allen is renowned for making incredibly precise knives that stand up to the closest of scrutiny and appreciation.

    Titanium/carbon frame, strong ti liner-lock®, Polished carbon scales, stepped thumbstud, machined clip, drilled backspacer.

    Mint condition - Never used or carried. Zipper pouch included

    Price: $495 $465 SOLD (Shipping US included, Paypal preferred - NO fee.)



    No trades considered, thanks. I will answer any questions, but first confirmed response in this thread has precedence.

    Thanks for your considerations.

    I'm sorry, I don't know the steel (I should, but it's been a while.) You may contact Trisak on his website to find out: www.yunaknives.com

    SPF! Sold Pending Funds

    ### EDIT: I sent a note to Trisak to find out. Thanks, guys below for the answer. I don't want anyone getting the 'chatting' infraction....

    Most of the Yuna knives are ZDP-189 clad with ATS34; that's what my Assassin is.

    From my understanding, Yuna old model used ATS-34 steel.

    The steel is ATS-34, burl of Maka wood bolster and stag handle.
    Oh! Now it's very difficult to find the good stag as this one in Thailand.

    Changeup...

    Buyer of the Yuna would rather own the Elishewitz. (Yuna: too large). We can do that.

    Elishewitz: SOLD

    Yuna: Back on the table at $395
