    DTN 240 RH Gyuto.

    Up for sale is Don Nguyen 240mm Gyuto. I was super excited to get this knife after hearing amazing things about the passaround. I bought this knife expecting AMAZING things. Accidentally splitting atoms because of its ability to get insanely sharp etc...

    Well, all of that might be true. I was so excited to get the knife that I ran home and quickly put it through it's paces. A dozen carrots, 2 bunches of celery and a half dozen onions later I realized that-THIS IS A RIGHT HANDED KNIFE! unfortunately I'm a lefty.

    So, I am going to pass on this knife to one of my lucky KKF Breathren

    $250 USD (includes shipping to US)

    Here's the link to the original sale's page: http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/sh...uyen-240-gyuto

    I actually like the handle. A lot more comfortable than I thought it was going to be. The real attribute that makes it so great is the profile though. The blade, somewhere between a Sujihiki and a gyuto, is a blast to use. I have already spoken to Don about making one of these for me(lefty).

    Don's knives really are great. For $250, or even $300, you're hard-pressed to find anything like it by a single maker.
