This is one of a special run Takeda made a few years ago with a special order profile. Unlike Takeda's usual gyuto, the heel is only 49 mm, and the blade has much less "belly" than his other wa-gyutos. The heel to tip length is 250 mm. The handle is Takeda's standard rosewood.

It has been gently used in a home environment, and will ship in the original box.

$280 shipped insured to CONUS addresses. Please PM for payment details.

Thanks for looking,

Rick

Looks really flat!

It is flatter than a regular Takeda. Here are a couple of pics I just took to show the profile a little better.

A Takeda and Shigefusa in the same week Rick? If you are letting these go, I can only imagine what you have in reserve! Good luck on the sale. I'm tempted myself, but you have enough of my money for one week. ;)

And a Carter the week before - I wonder what beauties he is picking up.

Funny I missed this...I was randomly going to send you a PM a few weeks ago to see if you still had this Takeda and if you were interested in selling it.

I think it's a great profile on this one.

This Takeda is sold, shipped and donation to KKF made.

Thanks everyone for looking, and I regret if anyone's heart was broken. :D
