    FS Bill Burke 10in cocobolo gyuto never used

    10 in 52100 Bill Burke gyuto. This has never been used. I own quite a few Burkes. Another just got finished and I bid on a Kramer damascus knife on eBay and won. So I have to sell a few things. Comes with certificate of authenticity from bladegallery. Never used. Does have some very slight scratches on the blade from transport but are very minimal. You can see them in the pics of the stamp. $1,500 shipped conus. I paid around just under $1,900 I believe.

    Sorry for the crappy cell pics. For some reason I find Burkes to be the hardest knives to take pictures of.

    gorgeous blade. GLWS.

    I have to ask tho, why buy such an expensive knife and never have a chance to use it?

    Well, Bill Burke is Bill Burke. It's one of those things that is really hard to put into words, but if you can get your hands on a Burke, you're a very lucky guy.

    How long is the waiting list now to order one of his customs? 12 to 18 months. Great knife for the right person.

    The Burkes are my favorite of all the custom makers out there. Thin with great edge retention. Price drop $1,450
