Okay here's the Deal Folks. I want a new bike (first triathlon come September) and a new knife (N2T Cleaver) and I was informed by my loving other that I must sell a knife if I want to buy them.

I've been thinking for a whole bunch of days what to sell and it came down to my set of golf clubs and the Del Gyuto.

I like this knife a lot, I like the edge it takes, convex grind to reduce sticktion (check Salty's video looking at the grind) , fun blue patina right now and it cuts pretty darn well. I'm just moving away from the Gyuto style, rare I know but I like my Nakiri's/Usuba/Cleavers a lot right now.

I can also provide more pictures if you need me too.

Payment by PP, you cover the fee's.

p.s The knife is actually about 245mm on the edge.

I see you got #2. This must be very hard to get rid of.

I will also be listing an O1 once our move is complete in about a week. Moving is friggin' EXPENSIVE!!! Also, in boxing everything up, I was confronted with exactly how many knives I own... It's a bit unjustifiable...

Did you consider a kidney? ;)

Congrats on the quick sale, and sorry for your loss.

Too late now, but with an unorthodox grip/stance and some practice you coulda made it work as your putter.

Just sayin'...

Too bad it had to go--looks like you and I were the 2 who got the amboyna & box elder handles from the pre-buy. Good luck with the bike and triathalon though!

Thanks!

I have a nakiri with the same wood as well so that helps the pain a little bit!

I'm getting a jamis comet... I'll be upgrading the stem to CF and to 140mm (yes its long for a tri-bike and changes the weight dist, but it helps my back which always hurts from deadlifts), now just to decide on pedals.

I have a sprint on Aug 1st, and I hopefully will be doing my first oly sept 1... if I can get my single swim distance up in time. I'm just under right now. But a months and a bit training should get me there + more.

Whats your goal for races? My sister does it for fitness but my end goal is to start winning the sprints and the oly's... friend of mine's is just to finish the IM he has coming up in august.

Thats true... I've had so many inquiries on the golf clubs and I just can't get around to replying.. I've got tee time 3 times next week and going back to older clubs will hurt too much.

I thought about it... what do black market organs go for these days :)

My goal is weight loss, and having something to train and work towards is a motivator. I mainly got back into road biking, and a sprint is something that I can do. I will see how I do in the sprint. Toughest thing to do is train for swimming, because there are no places with extended distances. The community pool is only 15 meters long and you don't get the same feel swimming extended distances.

I have Look Keo pedals on my road bike now, but I am going with a pair of Wellgo road SPD and mountain bike shoe because I am afraid I am going to slip and slide with road shoe. It is more of a safety thing during the transition.
