I Know the odds are against me, but seeing as people who post WTB's on this forum seem to get pretty good results I thought it can't hurt to ask!
As the title suggests I am after a shigefusa 240mm kasumi Gyuto, either wa or yo handle! I'm not looking for mint condition, in fact will consider any condition, so if you have one of these collecting dust shoot me a PM.
Thanks in advance
Huw

Thought I'd try the same as Von blewitt - anyone else with a wa 240mm that's underused and they'd like to sell?

Thanks guys. In the process of sorting it out right now, and am not in a rush. And yes, of course anyone I'd go for would be with its original wa! ;)

could somebody with one of these lightly used Kasumi Shigs give me a high rez, in focus shot of the choil and (from the spine side) tip? my Shig has been worked hard, and while it cuts great, i'd like to see a closer to stock grind.

Mine is slightly thinner than standard shig 206 grams, standard shig is around 220grams so i don't know if it would be helpful to you? Also i only take iPhone pics, which may also not be what you are after. If you want to see them anyway let me know

Send Maxim at Japanese Natural Stones a pm, he should be able to tell you what you should expect to pay for one. He has a 210 kasumi gyuto in stock right now.

Yes I know he have one, I'm one of his follower, but I'm looking for something used and maybe cheaper :)

I haven't tracked things too closely but my impression is prices are going up on JNS - maybe 20% recently. On the other end of the price spectrum, I just checked aframes and their listed price for a wa 210mm kasumi gyuto is $338. Of course you're unlikely to ever see one listed as being in stock there. But miracles can occur, and I know a member who found a knife there after watching for several months.

I've looked into non-English speaking/domestic-only Shig sources in Japan and would say that a normal-ish price for a wa 210 is about Y35,000 or $425. Most KKF members may not be able to buy through Japan, but based on what I've heard this is a decent price.

Nope not really :dontknow:
With Shigefusa knives prices will always very a lot because some vendors have 2 years wait and some 1 month even in Japan.
So if someone ordered 2 years ago of coarse his price will be a lot different then the one ordered 1 month ago :D
Shigefusa adjusted his prices about 1 year ago, so you cant have seen me raise price on his knives ;)

Here is a 270, the big brother to VB's knife. Maybe that will help give you a reference point.

when i say Choil shot, i mean including the edge...

Seth
12-05-2012, 04:11 PM
My apologies. I was wondering why you would want a shot of the choil unless you were just looking for finish. I'll get some better shots later if you think the 270 is applicable. (Duh.............)

12-05-2012, 04:18 PM
no need to be sorry, i wasn't clear. i think the 270 is totally applicable, thanks! :)
