Knives with no handles restock?

Thu Feb 20, 2014 7:05 pm

Mark,

I like that you offer some knives with no handles. I've enjoyed getting some handle upgrades from Tim, so it makes sense to get a knife without a handle. Less wasteful, and more economical.

It seems that the no handle stock has been steadily declining. Do you plan to continue offering some of these? Who else out there has interest in Mark getting some more?

I believe that the stock listed in that section is stock awaiting a handle. So, if I understand correctly, product will be listed there while is sits in the queue then removed and moved to the correct product page once handled.

You might contact CKTG directly if there is something specific you would like to try to get without a handle.

Those knives were set aside because some were making request for them without handles, but as you can see the selection is thin.

I do have some more knives on the shelf that I could offer. I'll try and get to it tomorrow.

It's a little challenging since knives move from unhandled to handled and I keep forgetting to take them off the no handle and inevitably someone orders a knife that we don't have. But that's my problem.

Cedarhouse, I found the Tanaka R2 Wa 240mm blade only listed in Tanaka under the Ironwood section, so I put that in my cart and ordered it, price was $450. I will let you know when I get it and get some Choil shots for ya! Thinking some nice Curly Koa for the handle :) Also ordered the AS Suji 270mm w/o a handle and the Kohetsu Blue #2 210mm knife, too. I have issues :)
