Hi Folks!

I'm looking to pick up a used, cheap, and thin 300mm/12 inch stainless western gyuto for a co-worker. Fit and finish are not terribly important, neither is condition of the blade (I can sharpen, profile, and polish it for him if needed). A new Fujiwara FKM in that length is around $100, which is about the max I'd want to spend, but if possible I'd like to get something a bit higher test second-hand since it's going to be a work beater. Let me know if you've got anything you wouldn't mind parting with and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Thanks!

What did you end up getting?

12" stainless K-Sab. Not exactly what I was shooting for, but it'll do and the price was good. And it's still an upgrade over his busted-ass Messermeister as far as I'm concerned, lol.

Make sure you knock that finger guard back to the same angle as the primary bevel. Then, you've got yourself a winner!
