    WTT: Konosuke 270 Funayuki gyuto for same gyuto in 240 + cash

    Very shortly after buying my 270mm Konosuke Funayuki (extra flat) gyuto, I realized it was probably going to be too long for me. So I used it minimally, didn't sharpen it, and experimented with some shorter knives. I am now happily using a masamoto ks 240. But I'd still like to have a Kono laser in my collection. If anyone has a 240 Funayuki (I'm not interested in the standard profile Kono) and wants to trade up we can swap with some cash, depending on the condition of your knife (mine is basically new).

    One catch: I've recently moved to Canada, so because of expensive shipping to the US and lots of annoying customs BS, it would be a lot easier to do this with someone in Canada. I will be in the US in late September however, so could so the trade with a patient American.

    I haven't posted photos because my knife looks like the brand new Kono you can see on line, but am happy to send photos to anyone with a real interest.

    Thanks for looking.

    How much would you sell for without trade?

    Sell it for a fair price then buy a new 240.

    Thanks for the economics lesson everyone. I had considered that, but was trying to avoid transaction costs and, more importantly, the 240s are all sold out.

    However, I actually took my knife to Tosho Knife Arts today, and they are going to shorten my knife to about 260mm, which is an ideal outcome anyway.

    Thanks for looking!
