I would like to do a small passaround with this knife, primarily for those that have not used a Deba and want to try one and also for those that have sizing questions about a Deba.
This is a "spare" for me. I wanted to try an inexpensive Deba to see if I liked it. I did and later bought a larger Suisin. I like this one, even had it rehandled, and still use it occasionally.
Normal rules, 6 months, 50 posts min. Keep it a week and send on to next. USPS Priority. Insure for $200.00. Keep me apprised here of location and tracking numbers. Because it is a relatively inexpensive knife I don't think it makes sense to go beyond USPS.
Additionally. Sharpen only if comfortable with single bevels. Do not thin or modify knife. Contact me in event of chipping or other repair required.
2 fish maximum. No chickens - Violators will be reported to Jon. hehehe.
I would like to be able to include newer members with this. If you do not meet normal minimums, pm a pic of your favorite gyuto and will consider on case by case basis.
Post here or pm if interested. Will cap at 10 (or less).
