Considering a trade: my Konosuke HD 270 Funayuki for your Masamoto KS 240 Gyuto
I'm not sure if it's ok to put up a post like this, and the moderators can feel free to take this down if not, but I'm toying with the idea of the following trade, but I haven't absolutely decided I want to do it. If this sounds good to you, let me know, and we can talk about it.
I recently got a Konosuke 270mm HD funayuki gyuto. I love everything about it except one thing -- the size. At 277mm, it's a little big for this home cook (but still very, very light at 6oz).
If you have a Masamoto KS 240mm gyuto in good condition, without too much patina (though I'd consider a very nice one), and you think you might be interested in a trade, let me know and we can talk it over. They retail for almost exactly the same price, so it seems like a fair trade.
My Kono is so new (I haven't even sharpened it) that I feel very comfortable just pointing you to the photos I posted when I first bought it. http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/sh...o-270mm-review
I'm not interested in any other trades for now, and I'm not looking to sell my Kono. I like it a lot and would only trade it given the right situation.
Thanks for looking.
