Few more on the chopping block! First up is this little number:
Rather simple, slim drop point blade. 1084 steel, hardened to roughly Rc56-57 with a brushed finish. Padauk handle scales, finished with a coast of wax. Also includes hand made leather sheath. Measures roughly 8.5 inches tip to tang, with about 4 inches of that being harp edge. I figure $75 sounds about fair for this one
Smaller blade, roughly 7.5 inches in length with a 3.25ish inch blade. 1084 steel, roughly rc56-57. Handle scales are cocobolo. No sheath for this one, as it intended to be a paring knife for kitchen use, however im more than happy to fabricate a sheath if you have a different purpose in mind. Want more than one so you have a matching set of steak knives? Just ask, more than happy to make a few to match. Asking $50 for this one
Now, these next 2 arent technically for sale, but im going to go ahead and post them anyway. First up is this guy:
Drop point blade, 8 inches long with a 4 inch cutting edge. Once again 1084 steel, roundabouts 56-57rc hardness. Handle scales are mahogany finished with linseed oil, flanked by a brass bolster and butt. Now, i say this one isnt technically for sale yet because i havent finished the sheath. Once i get that made up ill update this with the finished pictures, with both the sheath included and the knife once its cleaned up. Once that happens though, the asking price will be $100
Lastly, we have this:
Now, this once is finished but isnt for sale. This one actually is making its way to our own woodnthings, who commissioned the design. Its a skinner knife, with a blade roughly 3.5 inches long (i think, i forgot to measure) and an overall length of a little over 8 inches if memory serves correctly. The handle scales on this one are some absolutely lovely Honduran rosewood that woodnthings was fantastic enough to send me.
Now, i can hear some of you asking "well, if its not for sale whyd you post it in the classifieds?", to which i respond because im selling the design. If you like this blade style, shoot me a line, im more than happy to grind out another. Im actually working on a second in this same style at this moment. Beyond that, im also selling the fact that im more than happy to take commissions for whatever style youd like, just shoot me a line and we can work something out.
A note on pricing: Im posting what i feel are fair prices for these knives, based on the materials and time i have put into them. If you disagree with my assessment of value, id be more than happy to entertain a reasonable offer, provided you can explain your reasoning as to your offer. Please note, however, that a reasonable offer is not "$5 and a pack of gum because i can pick up a knife at walmart for that price". Thats not an offer, thats an insult.
Completely unrelated side-note, but any mods reading this, would i be allowed to post a link to something like an etsy shop for these to make purchasing easier, or would that violate forum rules?
