    Takeda 240 Gyuto Passaround

    Based on the feedback, the Takeda 240 will go around. This is going to be limited to a passaround in the USA unless there is high interest from multiple people abroad (as of yet, there is not). Also, this is not a rare knife so hopefully the overseas folks have neighbors with a Takeda.

    Rules
    1) You should be a regular poster here
    2) Package it properly and get it to the next person. Insure for $300
    3) You may sharpen the knife if you know what you're doing. Based on the edge retention of Takeda's Aogami Super, I doubt it will need more than some stropping. Try not to reset the primary bevel unless there is some horrible chip. When the passaround it done, I plan on reprofiling the knife to make it look more like a tall Japanese gyuto. The profile on my particular specimen is not ideal, but hey... that's what I get for asking for an extra-tall. It ended up with a fat belly.
    4) Even if I'm going to reprofile this, please use it on rubber (Sani-tuff) or wood. Do NOT chop on polyboard/plastic
    5) Post on this thread when you receive the knife to keep us up to date as to where it is
    6) Keep it for one week and pass it on.

    So far, the interested parties are:

    Pleue - Portland, OR
    Cclin - Carlsbad, CA
    Don Nguyen - AZ
    Bkultra - Chicago, IL
    Stereo.pete - Chicago, IL
    Dardeau - New Orleans, LA
    Labor of love - location unknown
    Chinacats - location unknown


    I'm sending it to the West coast to have it makes its way back East. Any more interested parties can post here.

    I'd like to check it out in San Diego, CA. Although I couldn't use it at work since you won't allow plastic board use. Still be worth it to me. I love my takeda petty.. I'd like to see how the gyuto feels.

    Sounds fun, looking forward to it, though I'll have to keep it at home since we have poly boards at work.

    Ill retract my entry. I barely get the chance to cook at home. The shipping wouldn't be worth the trial week for me. I'd really like to use the knife in a work environment and I wouldn't want to abuse your baby like that. I understand how it goes, I love my takeda so much I don't think I could ever allow a stranger to take mine from me!

    Sorry for wasting the time,

    Brad
