A friend of mine bought this set off of Woot maybe a year and a half ago. She gave them to me shortly thereafter and I told her I would either do something with them or try selling them for her. I haven't done anything with them so now they are here. These are faux single bevel. That is the front side looks like a single bevel and the back side in concave but then there is a tiny non-zero bevel on the back side of the edge that makes them highly asymmetric, double-bevel blades. The picture below is one I downloaded from Woot. The actual blades have some very faint brownish patina here and there aside from that, they are newer-looking than any (advertised like new) knife I've seen on this forum (refurb jobs not included). The set includes 210 deba and yanagiba and a 110 deba along with a bamboo box.

If you want them, you can have them for $200. Shipping within CONUS and Paypal fees, included. I will lower the price by $50 each week. If I can't get $50, I will toss them, however much it bothers me to do so.

How much grinding would be required to acheave a true single bevel?

This is like a reverse auction. Who cracks first, before it hits $50?
Kinda nice knives, actually.

Haha. Yeah. You'd have to invent a new cutting technique, Lefty. I used these knives a bit. I don't do much with deba but they work okay just not as sharp as a normal deba. Same thing with the yanagiba although I actually liked using it. I thought about keeping that one, to be honest.

Spike, not much. The bevel on the left side is very small, <1mm in most places. However, I would imagine you would need a pretty robust microbevel. A true single bevel out of VG10 would be prone to chipping.

That lil' deba looks like it would be fun.

Anyone looking to purchase these, just remember they are solid vg10 so have fun sharpening them.

BTW no pun intended, I used to own these knives and although they aren't a knife for purists they are really fun and get a pretty sharp edge it just takes a while, which for me was fun but exhausting.

I'd suggest going down by $2.50 per day, until someone cracks. My guess is $117.50.

That's a good guess. I'd pay around there. So it'll be $100 for tk59, and $17.50 to cover shipping and PayPal fees.

You're going to have a hard time convincing some of that fact, but congrats to both parties. :doublethumbsup:

BTW, these are sold. They are packed up and ready to go. I'll send you a conf # as soon as it's out.
Thanks.
