New forum thank you SALE!!

So as a thanks to Mark for setting up my sub forum for me, I am offering free shipping and 10% a couple knives I currently have available.
I will list the specs, and if you have any questions please feel free to ask!!

The Petty is a new design for me, I gave it a higher handle for more knuckle clearance than my normal 127mm utility chef. It has a 127mm blade with a nice distal taper and tapered tang. The handle is stabilized Sheoak rays with my copper/carbon fiber pins. The choil area on both of these is rounded and polished for a comfortable grip.

The second knife is a parer. I gave this one a hand rubbed finish, it also has tapered tang and is thinly ground with a distal taper coming to fine point. The handle is stabilized spalted oak burl. It is really one of the coolest piece of wood I have ever used.
Both of them are 14c28n stainless. I am really liking using this steel. It gets very hard, takes a keen edge and has fantastic corrosion resistance.

Thanks, between the tapered tang and the carbon fiber pins, it makes for a very light handle.
