Shigefusa 240 Gyuto $400
Hi - putting up my Shigefusa one more time. Nothing wrong with the knife, I just have 225 on the way, and way too many 240 Gyuto's. I have the original box. This is a fantastic deal for a Canadian, price includes shipping in Canada and the US with a tracking number.

Someone frickin buy this already... Amazing price. I have a 270 kitaji w/ Marko handle and I'm
even tempted just based on price and availability.
I would have 100% bought this a week ago. It's exactly what i was looking for but i couldn't find one so i bought a Carter. Bummer
I dont think that ending up with a Carter is ever a bummer. I would say that my shige and carter are actually my two most similar knives in terms of cutting performance. I really hope this one finds a great new home. I would have soiled myself out of glee if i had seen this sale a couple years ago.

i already have a 240 Kasumi Shig (with a Keller handle, in my case), and i was tempted, too. glad you seem to be taking the temptation off the table. :)

I didn't want to cut things with it, but it feels just right in terms of heft and balance. So, getting a 240 can't be a mistake, especially not without wait and for a good price.
Thanks for the bumps and kind words!
I'm embarrassed to clarify an expectation that I incorrectly set. There is a chip on the knife. I'm no master sharpener, but IMHO, this chip can be easily sharpened out - I've tried to take a picture or two of the chip using the macro setting on my knife. The terms of sale will not change - It's a steal!
You call that a chip?? A tiny ding is more like it!
