    Hi everyone ,
    As few of you know I have been making knives mostly on customs basis and few ready made ones here and there
    I would like to thank all of you for your support and keeping me busy

    I have been making extras along with customs just in case something goes wrong , if everything goes right extra knives are made into the customs so I can shave off from the wait time of people patiently waiting up to a year for a custom knife from me
    And sometimes steel doesn't want to play nice and all the sudden instead of a honyaki gyuto I will have 2 small gyutos, Petty and a parer who were initially intended for the initial honyaki gyuto . After having spend near 20 work hours on a single knife although it doesn't make the specs I turn into a ready made knife and list it on here , my Facebook page or Instagram . Trust me , last thing you want to do after spending that much effort on to a single knife is to admit defeat and keep it with the hope of someone asking for the knife one day . If it can be turned into a custom that waiting it will be but it is not possible in every case
    I have decided to start a mailing list and send out an email blast so everyone sees them at the same time and I am not favouring any because of the time I am posting it . I have people telling me " I would have taken that X knife for my y custom " and it is not possible for me to check with everyone before a ready made knife is listed .
    If you would like to be includes in this mailing list please either pm me , send message on Tansuknives FB page or send me an email to tansuknives at yahoo dot com and I will include you to the list . I plan on sending this email once a month and it will be on first come first serve basis . This months list will include a honyaki yanagi ,Damascus gyuto , honyaki suji , San mai line knife and a blue2 gyuto . Feel free to add any comments and suggestions , I am trying to come up with the best solution

    Second from the top is insanely nice. All are beautiful, though.
  5. That yanagi screams to me. Wish my budget allowed for it

    Another fan of the 2nd from top knife. I wouldn't turn my nose up at any of them. Beautiful work!
