View Full Version : Takeda AS 210mm Gyuto
02-20-2013, 04:15 PM
I got carried away and bought this off another forum member a couple weeks ago. I used it to prep a few meals (I'm a home cook), and really enjoyed using it, but I just really can't afford this right now. It's a bit under 8 5/8 " long--almost 220mm. Comes with box, $240 ConUS shipped.

Do you know if it has been sharpened? Also how flexy / bendy is the tip?

From original seller: " Takeda is brand new, only went through out of the box sharpening." I haven't sharpened it--it's quite sharp. Here's the original sales thread: http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/showthread.php/10432-FS-Kochi-240-Kurouchi-Wa-Gyuto-V2-Steel-and-Takeda-210-AS-Gyuto
I just did a quick test on the tip, but I'm really not sure what I'm doing here, so didn't push it that hard, and I don't want to mess anything up. I have heard that some Takedas are kinda bendy. Sorry--wish I could be of more help.

Classy move selling it at that price. You just got a point, in my book. Nice knife, by the way.

Could I be second in line if the sale falls through for any reason? Thanks.

Nice sale Todd - You at least got to play with it a little bit.

This sale is certainly not falling through, I was finally in the right place at the right time! Can't wait to get my hands on my first Takeda blade, thanks Todd!
