    Delbert Ealy 240 custom gyuto

    OK Gang,

    It pains me to do this, but I am putting up the Delbert Ealy gyuto for sale. It is a super cool knife, unbelievably beautiful with unbelievable nice fit and finish. This one is the spalted oak handle if I remember correctly. You can see the thread of the knife with better pictures of the handle here. The damascus is amazing.

    Ok, the reason I am selling the knife is that it is just not for me. The steel is super awesome, hard, but takes a great edge. The reason I am selling it, if you can believe it, is it is too thin for me. I mean this baby is the Kate Moss of knives. I am just used to something more robust. The thinness gives the knife a little flex that I am not used to. Maybe, if someone is looking for a super thin knife, this is the knife for them.

    Sorry for the crap cell pics. My camera is out of battery and I can't find the charger. PM me or email me at chazmtb at hotmail.com if you have any questions.

    Asking $700 shipped and PP.

    Thanks,

    Bao

    Wow... I think I'm speechless. Did you try to get used to it?

    Yes. I tried to get use to it. Problem is not really the knife. It is me, and that I have too many knives to choose from. There is more flex to the blade than I would like. But the steel is amazing. The fit and finish is even more amazing.

    I wasn't suggesting it was the knife. I'm just surprised you gave up.

    I finally got to see Del's gyutos in person today, and I can attest pics do not do the damascus justice. Beautiful blades! Someone is goning to get a nice score on this one.

    Del sold a couple of these on Sat @ ECG for more than this....I'm shocked this knife hasn't sold already.

    Bummer. I'm also not a fan of knives with flex. I was wondering if I just had a problem adapting but I guess we all really do have specific preferences.
