    I really want to do this, but I have to be honest with myself. It takes me a year to do a handle, I can only imagine how long it would take me to do a whole knife, lol.

    I previously neglected to mention that these blanks can be made into smaller versions and/or altered to a completely different design/model of knife if so desired. You'd want to just make sure that they remain cool during grinding as to not damage the heat treat.

    Some examples...

    300mm Suji to 270mm

    270mm gyuto to 240mm

    180mm nakiri to 180mm gyuto

    I also have available a one off 300mm sujihiki blank that's got a hidden tang already ground that I'd sell cheap. The reason is that this was done years ago back when I was still learning and the front of the handle grind in is, IMO, a little too close to the choil. This means that the choil would need to be re-profiled. This might not be that big of a deal to most as you'd probably want to do this anyway to make it your own style.




    Price $45 plus $9 shipping in US
    International OK but must pay actual shipping costs. [​IMG]



    No pictures....yet if you need them - no problem - but the price will be $75 [​IMG]

    Here's the hidden tang suji. Shoot me a PM of you're interested.

    Please don't judge me too harshly on the tang grind, I was very new to knifemaking when I did this. [​IMG]
