This blade is made from Aldos' cpm 154 Cm stainless steel.
Heat treated by Peters to RC 61-62

The Stabilized curly Koa makes a very nice looking handle. It is mechanically fastened with SS corby bolts and sealed with West Systems G-Flex epoxy.
But that is not what is awesome about this knife. Nope, what makes this knife really cool is the "laser" dimensions:


This knife was made from .100 (2.5mm) stock. The tang is tapered.
8" blade length, nice and compact but big enough for a melon or a large roast (be careful of bones with this one)
Full Distal Taper, this blade measures .060 across the spine 2" from the tip
Just behind the micro bevel the edge measures .005, edge is finished on a 10K stone
The profile has a good amount of belly with a generous flat spot and ends with a soft heel.
The heel measures 1.87 (47mm) wide
Plenty of knuckle clearance as the handle arches up a bit.
Handle length is about 4-3/4 from butt to the concave bolster.

Check out the choil and distal taper shots.

The handle besides being a pretty wood, is made for a variety of grips. In all my testing of the knife I primarily used a pinch grip and found it comfortable.

My favorite thing I did with the knife was prepare a giant fruit salad for christmas. This thing is a fruit master. Pineapples, mangos, grapes, kiwi, strawberries, apples all with the glossiest of cuts. Be careful doing in hand work, the tip is a bit spooky. Mirepoix is a breeze.
I also found butterflying chicken breast really, really nice. Boneless proteins are no problem, I would be extra careful around bones though.

I am asking 350$ for this knife, that includes shipping (CONUS). For active CKTG forum members I will discount 50$ just because you are all awesome! I will accept a postal Money order or Check. I would ask that the buyer covers Paypal Fees if paying by paypal, address is timostheos@hotmail.com
You can return the knife within 5 days of receiving it for a full refund as long as knife is in original condition.

Tim, That is one awesome looking knife! I remember when I first got started woodworking that curly Koa was readily available at my wholesaler "White Brothers" in Oakland, Ca. Unfortunately I passed on it for more conventional woods until, it disappeared from inventory.

thanks guys, when i first started making stuff and buying wood, the curly Koa called my name. This was the first pc of stabilized wood I bought. Finally I had a blade worth using it on. I got it at burl source. I seriously love using this knife , if it doesnt sell soon i just might keep it, just worried someone might leave it at the bottom of the sink

So before reading through this I saw the title of this thread and thought, "Tim...why in the holy hell did you make a one hundred and fifty four centimeter laser gyuto...?".

Turns out I'm an idiot.

I thought the same thing - then I thought that he mistook his metric dimensions - then, I finally got it :oops:
