    Tadatsuna 300mm INOX Western handled Gyuto

    I just bought this knife from Bishamon a couple of days ago. I bought it for 2 reasons; at $200 it was a screaming deal, and I never owned a 300 gyuto. While used, this knife is too nice for me to use it in the capacity I'd planned as a beast of burden/beater.

    About the knife. It's used so there are some light scratches on the face and there is some wear on the handle. It has a good edge on it. It is a thin knife but I wouldn't call it a laser. Bishamon got it right when he said that it doesn't feel 300mm big.

    Sorry about the pics...Bishamons pics of the knife are still up and better than mine.

    I will admit, I felt sorry for this knife when I saw you had purchased it, knowing what you had in store....

    It's nice you decided it didn't deserve such a fate.
    Catch and release knife buying, that's sporting.

    Back into the wild little knife...

    Haha, not a bad idea but it's a bit too much INOX for my tastes. I'd be all over it otherwise!

    Monday bump. I used this at work last week and it is a prep monster. It is really nimble for it size.

    drop to $180...if you are even thinking about this knife now's the time to pull the trigger. If not, I might just give it to the kitchen monkeys and that would be a cryin' shame.

    $180 OBO
