SOLD Scorpion Forge 200mm chefs knife

Discussion in 'Buy/Sell/Trade' started by Anton, Apr 18, 2019.

  1. The Knife in all it's glory

    200mm custom chef made by Cris Anderson. This knife started his Extra Heavy line. Thick spine, agressive taper, thin tip and very good food release.
    Mizu honyaki W2 steel hardened to a crazy ~65 HRC. Easy to sharpen, holds edge pretty well and not chippy.

    • 200mm length.
    • 50mm height at the heel.
    • Weight 170g
    • Balance point is 1cm from the handle.

    Sharpened twice. It's been mostly a drawer queen that I pulled when wanted to compare its cutting ability with other rivals. And speaking of cutting and food release — it's one of the best. On par with Kato and other customs.


    Leather sheath with tight fit.

    W2 (don't confuse with White #2) takes a really nice blue/red/yellow patina

    Thick spine, thin behind the edge.
    50mm spine near the handle. 20mm spine mid blade. 0.6mm spine 1cm from the tip.

    Cris offers a touchup for the new customer for the price of shipping. And option to convert handle to his newer style (or change handle completely), but that's extra.


    Asking 800$ shipped. I believe you can't beat it at this price level.

    Ping me in PM or Instagram @icanhaschzbrgr for any questions.

    Is the 200mm actual edge length or overall BLADE length?
    I'm curious about:

    - actual edge length
    - overall blade length
    - overall length of whole knife

    Thanks
