CKTG Custom Tiger Maple Handles

Mon Jan 27, 2014 1:34 am

I just finished some Quick Look videos and one was on the Shigefusa Nakiri 165 Custom Maple Handled knife. You should check out the video to see this handle: http://youtu.be/PcZ-riK5sJo. They have a really cool 3 dimensional type figured pattern that changes as the light hits at different angles. These handles are awesome to look at in person! The video show the effect pretty well. The Shigefusa Nakiri is a very nice knife BTW.

I just thought some of you might want to get a better look at these handles Mark is installing of some of his knives. Like, they're totally Bitchin' 8-).

Enjoy!

I was pulling the trigger on buying that knife on Wednesday when after work it was sold. :( I had been eyeing it for over a month. I am waiting for another to come in or get this one as a demo special or did you buy this one Steve. Second Shigefusa nakiri to slip out of my hands ...so sad

Thanks for the kind comments :-).

Boostfed - I'm convinced more and more, that if you see something you really like on CKTG and you have the funds, you better pull the trigger NOW. Especially on some of the nicer knives or one-off custom handled versions. I'm still on the fence on keeping the Shigefusa. I don't need a Nakiri or another knife for that matter ;-), but darn this thing is nice. I haven't used it at all, so it will not be sold as a video knife - that's only for knives that see some use. Sign up for the email notification on this one and swoop in and order it!

Charcuterie - that's a question for Mark Richmond. I'm not privy to that information.

I am signed up for an email notification and won't let it slip away when it comes available! I have a Shun Nakiri that I love but a co worker wants to buy it so I want to replace it with this one. I love using the nakiri at work and want a Shigefusa. Would love a Shig 240mm gyuto but the jump from 210 to 240 gets expensive.. I am gonna wait out cor the Shig Nakiri , I can get it elsewhere but the CKTG custom handled ones are definitely nicer

I really like the Bubinga/Wenge semi custom handles from Isaiah as well. I think they epitomize understated elegance. Super F&F on these also. I appreciate your comments - thanks!
