STill available - $300. And it now includes a nice kasumi finish, and a fresh edge of Japanese natural stones.
And pics of the knife with the kasumi finish (yass).
Only $300 for this custom handled kanesho aogami santoku! Kasumi was applied using a shobudani stone.
I don't post much now, the crowd has dried up. but since there is no real marketplace for these in the local context, I'll leave these up here:
1. Carothers SOLD
2. Enzo Birk 75, reground by Gareth Bull to be thin behind the edge and modded with the custom Emerson look - titanium bolsters, thumb dips, beveled front edge, dovetailed and raised green/brown micarta scales, blasted liner edges. Some screws need attention - either JB Weld or change new screws (Euro 6 for whole set when they are in stock from Brisa.fi), but for EDC/daily pocket carry, it's all good. I have the clip but have a screw missing. Used, scratches and marks. The foundation Birk 75 in S30V came with a low scandi grind and costs USD120 plus shipping. Throw in a regrind job, custom scales and bolsters and all the back and forth shipping, and you can see the costs going past USD400 (that's over SGD500 and time, effort and resources).
SGD370 cash and collect. Price is firm.
Knives are sold "as is", as they're users - there will be scratches and marks with use but you can see from the pictures it's not marked like being dragged on asphalt).
Thanks for looking.
Plan to sell my Shirogorov Neon Zero (1100 SGD) and 111 Blue carbon fibre (1450 SGD), in mint condition, both just cut 1 paper, 1 meal (steak for Neon zero and pizza for 111) and 1 apple, cleaned with isopropyl alcohol after use. Let me know if you have interest.
