Shigefusa 240mm Gyuto with Custom Handle
Up for sale is a 240mm Shigefusa gyuto with a gorgeous Keller handle, one of the nicest handles I own. It's a good cutter, what you think of when you hear Shigefusa. The grind had been well maintained and it's cute a cutter. I'm moving the knife because I just have too many 240mm gyutos (I think this will bring me down to four) and being in school means I don't actually use them that much right now. Instead this money could be much better spent buying textbooks
This knife was originally EdipisRex's (I think?) and I'm shamelessly stealing his picture. The saya is not included as it cracked during it's time with me.
I'm asking $450 for the knife. More pictures can be taken upon request.
Happy New Year!
what is the handle? black palm and red palm?
Crunchy, I believe so. It's a great handle and it balances the knife more towards the palm than shigefusa's are with the typically Ho wood handles. I think this makes the knife feel more nimble.
Bump and price drop to $425 This includes shipping and insurance in CONUS.
I wish I remembered, but I would have to see the handle a bit better. Tip is black palm, handle probably amboyna or afzelia burl (I don't use red palm).
