    FS: Kato workhorse gyuto 240mm

    Selling my kato 240mm workhorse gyuto. Acquired from Huw in like new condition (apart from a slight chip at the heel, about 1mm, probably due to shipping, it was since rounded and will not affect cutting in anyway). I have re-finished the blade with sandpaper to remove most of the vertical grinding marks and sharpened it twice on Jnats.
    Also included, is a not so well made friction fit snake wood saya made by me
    The reason I am selling is because I so like the Kato workhorse that I decided to grab the last Kato Kikuryu that Maxim has. It is now coming my way so I am selling the workhorse.

    Asking: US$440 with free worldwide DHL shipping.
    Payment method paypal: gift or + 3%

    Aussie buyers: AU$450 with free registered shipping. Direct deposit preferred, or paypal with the above condition.

    Thanks for looking.

    There are many people who claim to be good cooks; just as there are many people who, after having repainted the garden gate take themselves to be painters.

    Thanks mate, I initially wasn't sure about if I really like the Kato, but after using the suji and gyuto, I am more than convinced!

    If I'd not bought one new, I'd be all over this.
