Here's the deal; I received this knife and never took it out of the bubble wrap. It has never been used and comes with the edge put on it when it left his shop in Venice. There are no pictures other than the ones Jon has up on his site.I think Jon is still out of stock on these. $360 via paypal, includes shipping and insurance

Details

Gengetsu is a new line from JKI. For quite some time, we have wanted to make a line like this... stainless clad carbon. After some testing, we finally got something we were happy with. These knives are a bit more strudy than some of the super thin knives we sell. However, they are still very thin behind the edge, not unlike our Kochi or Gesshin Heiji knives. The outsides of these knives are stainless and the inner core is a semi-stainless steel. They offer a great balance of ease of sharpening, corrosion resistance, and edge retention.



These knives come with burnt chestnut octagonal handles because they are some of my favorites... more dense than ho wood, a bit heavier, and they retain amazing grip when wet. I also happen to like the way they look. Gengetsu knives also come with ho wood sayas.



These knives are an exclusive to JKI and a collobaration between us and one of the very talented craftsmen we work with.

Someone else please buy this! I picked up a stainless clad white #2 Gengetsu and it's a performant knife, and this is a great price for an unused knife.

What type of steel? I think there may be one or two people on this forum that have an interest is they types of steel good kitchen cutlery may be made from. But I may be wrong...

Is it this one? http://www.japaneseknifeimports.com/kitchen-knives/gengetsu/gengetsu-240mm-stainless-clad-white-2-wa-gyuto.html

If so, it's White #2 clad in stainless. El Pescador, if that's correct, you might want to edit the title of your thread. People might be misled by the term "semi-stainless," which is different.

Pesky doesn't list the steel because the guy who sells it doesn't either. It is a mystery, but it's great.

No, it's not the knife you link to. As stated in the description, "The outsides of these knives are stainless and the inner core is a semi-stainless steel."

Here's the proper link: http://www.japaneseknifeimports.com/kitchen-knives/gengetsu/gengetsu-240mm-stainless-wa-gyuto.html

A great deal, and if I didn't already have a Gesshin Heiji ...

Ah, got it, thanks for setting the record (and me) straight. I was thrown off by the identical specs.
