One more knife up for sale before I am off to Hong Kong for two weeks.

Zakuri blue #1 240mm gyuto. I got this knife from Jon in 2011 and has been using it in alteration with other knives. Recent purchases of Shigefusa gyutos and Heiji Santoku makes me really realised that this Zakuri has too much belly for my liking.

So for this well loved, KU stripped, secondary bevel widen and raised, slightly thinned, rounded choil and spine, with sign of crack on the ferule, work horse Zakuri, I am asking $150AUD shipped within AU. I think this is a fair price considering, a new one from Jon shipped to AU is in the order of $200.

These images are from last night sharpening. Open in new tab/window for full size.

And compared with patina images I took on the day before.

+rdm_magic, check this page http://auspost.com.au/parcels-mail/postage-assessment-calculator.html for UK parcel postage for under 500g parcel.

For this knife, I will do 155AUD shipped to UK via AusPost pack and track international, paypal/handling fee included.

I have been using the knife a bit for the past week. Still prefer the lower tip of the Shig and Heiji that I have. The knife has been cleaned up a bit more, less of original rough grind marks, and a good kasumi polish.

How about, 128 AUD shipped within AU? Heiji gyuto and vintage K-Sabatier chef recently received have superseded the role (a robust workhorse knife) this beautiful Zakuri has in my block.

woulda bought it if only my country's postal service don't steal. i just lost a couple packages recently. if i bought this, it woulda gotten stolen as well. =(

only way for that to not happen is to have it insured and shipped via fedex or something.... that would cost about as much as getting a new one and then some.

i really like what you did with the knife.

only option for me is to get stuff from the US only coz I have couriers there that won't charge and arm and a leg and i don't get taxed like a murrfurr when i use their services =(

Sorry for the late post. I'd just like to say I received the knife a few days ago. Haven't even had the chance to use it yet. The knife has had some great work put into it and edge looks very nicely finished and I must say the packaging of the knife was excellent. More secure and professional than most parcels I've received. Great buy! Thanks schanop!
