    Watanabe 240 Blue steel Gyuto w custom handle by Mario Ingoglia

    I bought this knife from Mario a few a year or two ago. Hate to sell it, but need to offset all my purchasing lately. LOVE the profile on this baby and the grind is fantastic - at one time, when Dave Martell sharpened this knife he said: "One of the best Watanabe spine to edge grinds that I've seen." The handle was redone by Mario and is nice and mighty in the hand. The fit and finish is also excellent as the choil has been ground in ever so slightly which looks cool and works great with a pinch grip. He has also nicely rounded and polished the knife all along the spine and choil. Has a nice blue patina on it, but I can flitz if you like. Great all around everyday knife. Asking what I paid - $420 shipped conus.

    I too have to say WOW! Out of my price range with work being slow, but that would look great in my knife drawer. Out of curiosity- does it come with a saya?

    Sorry, there is no saya. Thanks for all the compliments....you all have me considering just keeping it. Must resist, too many 240s as it is.
