WTS Carter Hopkins 210 Suji/Line Knife

Post by Jean Valjean » Mon Apr 08, 2019 10:59 am

Up for sale is a 210mm Sujihiki by Carter Hopkins. Steel is 52100. I think we're all familiar with Carter's impeccable handle/saya work and his eye for detail comes through in his blades as well. This is a beautiful package, desert ironwood handle with bronze spacers. Knife has a great grind and excellent distal taper, and just the tiniest bit of wiggle (flex) towards the tip - and I mean that in a good way.

Has a nice stable patina on it, but can remove at buyer's request.

I paid just over $400 for this new. Asking $350 shipped CONUS.

Thanks for kind words guys. It really is a beautiful piece that will make someone very happy, I've just done a lot of buying recently and need to make some room for incoming stuff. For a full custom by a domestic maker, you simply cannot beat the price.

I already have two 210 petty/ sujihiki knives. These days they are some of my most used. Gosh I don't need a third but this is gorgeous.
