    mini passaround: tanaka ginsanko 270 gyuto

    Has been thinned and rehandled.
    5 spots, 2 already reserved.
    please only respond if you are seriously considering getting one as a workhorse in pro environment. The 3 remaining slots will be hand picked. Sorry guys, USA only.

    and it's started! going first to k-fed.

    please note that this has had a lot of work done, ie definitely not stock form. spine and choil were rounded and considerable amount of thinning all done by member knyfeknerd. i've put a lot of use with this thing over the course, last sharpening was jns 1000 and synthetic aoto a week ago. feel free to sharpen, but please don't alter the geometry as i love how it cuts as is. fyi, responds quite well to ceramic rod and strops.

    would appreciate feedback in this thread from each leg of the pass.
