    .140 thick CPM154 from Aldo, heat treated by Paul Bos to RC61
    7.75" long, 3.9" blade, standard full height double bevels.
    Slightly thicker than my normal handles, using Redwood burl from Mark at Itsaburl/Burlsales.com. Scales are nicely shaped, less flat and narrow than many Nubilus without being thick and bulky.
    Sheath is equipped with a small Tek-Lok and is secure but not super tight, with a click in fit.
    Finish is a very fine scotchbrite for the bevels and bright everywhere else.

    This is my first stainless knife using my own blade. I've done a few previously with purchased blades.
    TODAY ONLY SALE - $135 w/domestic shipping ----- $150 including sheath and tek-lok. domestic shipping is $8, international by request.

    I'm not sure what's up with the artifacting on the first one along the edge and lower portion of the tang. Camera issue, not knife.

    It is a bloody razor. well, not bloody, I managed to avoid cutting myself. One of the sharpest knives I've done despite a more normal thickness. I often make my Nubilus come to a very fine edge then sharpen, which results in a great slicer but limited edge impact strength. This one has just a touch more behind the edge but about a 19 degree edge (free hand but used 19 as my guide). It would be easy enough to turn that into any of the popular angles for the sharpening systems if needed.

    When I can, sure. Obviously with the burl there's always the chance I won't be able to get a similar wood, but usually Mark has something close or equally lovely.

    Thank you for the compliments guys. This one is really hard to part with but I have bills to cover too and if I start keeping them....
