Fundraiser. Yahiko VG10 Wt Ukrain Bog Oak Handle

Post by ChefKnivesToGo »

Donation Knife! This Yahiko VG10 Gyuto is made with a piece of Stabilized Ukrainian Bog Oak. We imported this wood several years ago. It's 4,000 years old and makes a special gift. The price is $139.95 and all profits are going to World Central Kitchen. One week only. I have about a dozen of these made up. I have some extra handles and blades so if I sell out I'll make some more.

4 days ago I got a message from my bog oak supplier. His name is Volodymyr and he digs the stuff out of the ancient river beds on his property and then cuts it into blocks for sale all around the world.

"Couldn't answer right away. We are constantly bombed, the city is practically destroyed. They shoot civilians. It's hell in Ukraine now."

It’s quite a sad and horrible time in the Ukraine. The world has certainly changed A LOT in the last 24 months…it’s mind-blowing.

This is the first installment. We have a few more knives to sell but they need the money now.
