    We are now settled in our new home and it feels good to be back in the shop!
    I've got a chef up for sale here in AEB-L, Koa and Bog Oak. Good Koa is getting harder to find and more expensive but it is just amazing stuff. The blade is flat ground with the lower 1/4 convex to aid in food release. There is some distal taper but the spine retains some rigidity so there's not a lot of flex. I think this would make for an nice all around kitchen slicer for someone. Thanks for looking!

    Specs:
    OAL: 12.5"
    Blade: 7.5" long, approx. 2" heel height, 600 grit hand sanded satin finish, convex lower 1/4 down to 0.005" before sharpening, distal taper.
    Steel: 0.11" AEB-L heat treated by Peter's to RC61,
    Handle: Stabilized Koa (by K&G), Bog Oak bolsters with black paper micarta and white G10 liners.

    $SOLD shipped CONUS
    International buyers welcome, shipping extra.

    I wanted to try and better capture the movement of the Koa so I took a quick video. Hopefully this works.

    Good to see you are back up and running,
    Another beautiful knife.
    I got to show mine off during the holidays and everyone was very impressed. The knives you made for me have exceeded my expectations.
