FS: 240 Watanabe gyuto OR 240 DT ITK gyuto
I'm trying to raise some funds quick to hopefully buy my buddy's Big Green Egg (who doesn't need two, right? :D). Therefore, I'm looking to sell ONE of my two gyutos. I can't decide which one I want to keep so I'm offering up both and I'll keep the one that doesn't sell.
240mm Watanabe blue #2 gyuto with basic D-shaped ho wood handle. I bought this one from Shinichi himself when he came to the Knife Expo in Pasadena earlier this year. Has some patina on it and some light cleaning scratches, but nothing that shouldn't polish up easily or use as it is. It's never been sharpened since I got it because I'm too scared to put it to the stones. I've always had two gyutos so it's use was always split with one other knife, plus I'm just a wannabe home chef so this one has never been used hard.
240mm DT ITK in AEB-L. I got this in a trade about a month ago. I really like the this knife and it performs awesome even though it really needs to be sharpened (again, I'm too much of a wuss to put such a nice knife on the stones). This one has sharpening scratches on it from the previous owner that you can see in the pictures. I'll be bummed to see this one go as it's perpetually out of stock.
Either knife is $275 + shipping from 92507. No trades, please. I wasn't sure how to price these so if anything is out of line I wouldn't be offended if someone sent me a private message letting me know.
I don't have a digital camera and these shots were the best I could do with my iPhone. I'm not trying to hide anything so if you would like to see more specific pictures please let me know.
