Thank god you did it!

You're welcome. ;)

I tried to ignore this. Let it sit for a few hours. I even asked Jon Broida to tell me it wasn't necessary (as I was in the middle of emailing back and forth with him about a 240mm gyuto when I saw this post). Instead of being the voice of reason, he said, "what's one more knife?" I guess in this case, the answer to his question is $495!

hey... its a cool knife and notably different from the 240 you ordered with me. I'm just trying to help you widen your range of experience :P

Here. Let me copy and paste from the invoice:

1. Gesshin Hide 240mm Blue #2 Hon-Kasumi Wa-Gyuto with Ebony Octagon Handle and Black Horn (with ho wood saya)

2. Gesshin Heiji 210mm Semi-Stainless Wa-Gyuto with Ebony Octagon Handle and Black Horn (with sandalwood saya)

Great knife day, yes. But as I told Jon, I am not looking forward to balancing my checkbook at the end of this month!

No, Jason, it's not. The one you sold me is in my rotation. It may yet find its way to the B/S/T, but for now it is one of my nicer knives.

Just a quick note of thanks to Rick for this. Purchased on Monday, shipped on Tuesday, and in my hands (after traveling from Florida to California) on Thursday. Can't ask for more than that. Knife was carefully packaged and is exactly as was described, a brand new Shigefusa 240mm gyuto in its original blue box! Razor sharp (by my standards) out of the box. It is much heavier than I expected (makes my slightly longer Masamoto KS feel like a feather in comparison, and even feels heavier than my 270mm Carter). I'm pretty sure I love it already, and look forward to putting it through its paces. How Rick came to be in possession of such an item and why he decided to let it go I don't know (never asked), but I'm happy he did! If you ever have a chance to deal with Rick, don't hesitate.

Great guy. I would have thought harder about this if the seller were lesser known, but thankfully I didn't have to.
