    FS: Hiromoto 240 AS Gyuto

    This Hiromoto was part of first group buy and rehandled and "improved" by Dave M. The parts that are supposed to be round have been rounded, the parts that are supposed to be sharp have been sharpened. To my knowledge the knife was not professionally thinned.

    I bought it here "lightly used in a home environment" and have treated it the same. Grood cutter, robust but nimble. Handle is great example of Dave's work. Original box and after-market saya. Note: The neat little pin with the orange string has gone to wherever pins go.

    $250 PP, includes Priority shipping in US.

    From original b/s/t post: "Rehandled by Dave Martell in teal dyed maple with black liners. Dave did the work during the third group buy."

    Change my description of first group buy to third group buy.

    Here's a link to the gallery of rehandles for that knife:

    The handle is nicer than the pics show.
