Bensbites Gyuto

Post by Bensbites »

Guidelines borrowed from other posts.

If you are interested... I made a gyuto.

Pass Around Criteria:
150 Post minimum
CONUS (to keep shipping costs down)
1 week per person, give or take
Ship with tracking and insurance for $250
5-8 people, I have a few others from Instagram and previous clients. Preference will be given to past clients and active forum members.
Reach out my email, Bensbites at Gmail subject line passaround. Please supply your username and address. (Following these instructions is critical).

Treat this knife like your own, do not abuse it. Feel free to sharpen. If you damage the knife you will be shipping it to me for repair and possibly ending the passaround.

I am looking for feedback, public or private on my knife making skills.

stats...
144 g
193 mm (7 5/8 in) long by 39 mm (1 9/16th) inch heigh at the heel.
AEB-L ~62 hrc outsourced heat treatment by Jarod Todd Knives.
Handle- ringed gidee with maple and black pakkawood.

Very nice! Wish I could take part. Good luck with the passaround, and happy journeys in the knife-making world! I'm totally jelly! Both wood AND steel!

It's very exciting to see someone turn an interest and talent into a blade like this!

Hi All,

I had thought this would be more popular. Is there something different this crowd would like to see?

Don't know about that, but might the Labor Day Weekend be having an inpack on this?

I'd also assume the ol' 240 wheelhouse has to do with it, but I do recall timos sending out 190's for passarounds, and the pros were never shy of taking up the offer :roll:

I've just been busy. I thought of starting a pass around too, but with shipping problems and this scare that everyone has. I doubted anyone would want to
