Full disclosure- I need some funds so I'm unloading some knives. These both need a little work to get back up to speed, but I've got way too much on my plate right now between other projects and opening a new restaurant. They've been used hard in a pro kitchen, and have some scratches from thinning and sharpening. These will be priced accordingly mind you.
Anyways, 240 blue paper Watanabe pro Gyuto-suke. Kind of. I say kind of because this is pretty asymmetrical. Not fully, and it ain't flat on the back, but its not as full as the front. Doesn't have the faceted sword tip, but has a very flat belly. I did a lot of work on the tip and its dangerous now. This is a great veg knife, and could easily double as a slicer/sashimi killer but needs some thinning if you're gonna use it for thicker product or a day to day prep machine. Takes a very quick and pretty patina. I put a quick finish on it, but nothing special. The handle is just friction right now, so if you wanna knock it off for polishing, or epoxy it on... Oh yeah- Marko made the handle and saya. They're both fecking beautiful. Paid just under 6 for this, asking $375 all in. International pays shipping. It's practically worth it for the handle and saya alone.
Next is a 240 Kato gyuto. Also could use some thinning. And also got a quick finish. I was thinking about sending this off to Jon for the once over, but money and all that. I thinned the tip some, and thinned the blade awhile back, but could use another session. Slightly assymetrical edge, but easy enough to bring back to 50/50. Handle is literally perfect for this knife. Asking $350 all in, international pays shipping. iPhone pics- bear with me
