Here for your consideration is a White #1 Konosuke Fujiyama kiritsuke 240mm w/ an ebony wa handle. I've used this knife for a couple of months, sharpened on the stones once and stained the saya the same as the other one in the pic below...(knife for sale is the one on top). It has a beautiful ocher patina and is, as you might expect, atom-splitting sharp.
$240 post paid (U.S.) to your door. I accept paypal gift (macmiddlebrook1@gmail.com) or USPS money orders. PM me with any questions. Thanks for looking!

That's a really good price for such a knife. Hope a newbie picks this up.

NO ChoP!

Thats a screaming sweet deal! Too bad I'm jobless, and owning a restaurant isn't making me rich right now....

(not too sure that patina is very healthy....looks a little orange to me?)

It's not orange (rust), it's ochre (patina). Please keep any speculation to yourself or send me a PM.

It's the one on top in the 2 gyuto pic where everything is shown except the very end of the handle. Is there something specific you'd like to see? It's no problem, I'll take some more pics when I get off work @ 1:30 EST. EDIT: Oh, I see...only the ferrule is visible :D, I'll take better ones and post them soon.

Would just like to say that I have had a few knives that patina'ed like these do. Only seen it on San Mai knives like these. I see nothing wrong with this. This is a kiritsuke gyuto or a single bevel knife?

Just got the same knife and use it everyday at work...it's a great knife, and it gets silly sharp!

And BTW if you don't like the patina it will come of with a single scrubbing with a new blue scrubbie...
