    I just finished up on this 240mm K-tip gyuto made from CPM154 (powdered stainless) steel. The handle is an octagon wa using a "metallic" poly acrylic material.

    The customer ordered this knife while he was here in the shop visiting and was able to design the knife right then and there. He came up with just the profile and handle size/design on the spot and from there I did the profile grinding and then passed the knife back and forth between us until he had just the right feeling on the board he was looking for. He had me tweak the heel height and also added in the K-tip feature, all under his immediate approval. The customer then went through my bin of poly blocks and paired up a combo that I wasn't too sure about, certainly not something that I would have done on my own, yet I think the end result is simply fantastic! He did a great job on designing his knife and I was happy to build it for him.

    Thanks Richard, enjoy! :)
