    This is one that I honestly thought I'd never sell. Hands down one of the best guest cutters I've ever had. In fact it became the benchmark for all other knives I've owned. The 'W' like grind is just insane. If it were a 220mm it would have a permanent place in my daily kit. It's that awesome.
    And si is the custom handle that Ian from Haburn knives installed. The wood is spalted tamarind, IIRC, with a stainless steel bolster/ ferrule that balances the knife perfectly. Also, the spine and choil have been rounded nicely.

    There's 2 reasons why I'm selling this gem. First is that I hardly use it lately as I've retired to knives around 220mm to 230mm in edge length. This specific example hits 245mm which was once my sweet spot. Second is I need to raise funds for a konosuke MB. So with that said, I'd certainly entertain a trade for said MB.

    As I mentioned, the edge length is 245mm, heel height is 52mm. Spine out of the handle is 5mm. Overall the knife is in Fantastic condition. It's been sharpened once, touched up once, and stropped on Jnats a handful of times during its tenure here with me. During this time it's seen off and on use as rotate through my collection regularly.

    Asking price is $510 which includes PayPal and 2 day priority shipping in the conus.

    From what I understand Ian doesn't do custom handle jobs anymore, let alone this style of handle. Price of handle cost me a total of $350.
