210mm Artifex on top, 240mm Artifex below:
Sneak Peak at the next 3!! These are 1095 Carbon steel blanks ground, heat treated and finished by Randy Haas from HHH Custom Knives. I had ordered these a while back, but had recently found an AS Core Kanetsune 210 gyuto and the Artifex 210, so my 210mm gyuto spots got filled. I was looking for a different Nakiri and ordered this 7" one, but then I fell in love with the Tanaka Nakiri. So now these will be finished up and sent off to Mark!
I included a little piece of the handle material next to each. All are stabilized woods: Blue Box Elder Burl on the top Gyuto, Spalted Sycamore Burl on the other Gyuto and some nice Flamed Redwood Burl for the Nakiri handle.
