    Shigefusa 240 Gyuto $400

    Hi - putting up my Shigefusa one more time. Nothing wrong with the knife, I just have 225 on the way, and way too many 240 Gyuto's. I have the original box. This is a fantastic deal for a Canadian, price includes shipping in Canada and the US with a tracking number.

    I dont think that ending up with a Carter is ever a bummer. I would say that my shige and carter are actually my two most similar knives in terms of cutting performance. I really hope this one finds a great new home. I would have soiled myself out of glee if i had seen this sale a couple years ago.

    i already have a 240 Kasumi Shig (with a Keller handle, in my case), and i was tempted, too. glad you seem to be taking the temptation off the table.

    Nice catch. I had sold my 225 kasumi to Josh before I had seen it (btw, it's now with Dave) and I don't think I would have had the strength to sell it after ogling it for a bit, really a very nice looking knife. I didn't want to cut things with it, but it feels just right in terms of heft and balance. So, getting a 240 can't be a mistake, especially not without wait and for a good price.

    Gents,
    Thanks for the bumps and kind words!

    I'm embarrassed to clarify an expectation that I incorrectly set. There is a chip on the knife. I'm no master sharpener, but IMHO, this chip can be easily sharpened out - I've tried to take a picture or two of the chip using the macro setting on my knife. The terms of sale will not change - It's a steal!

    You call that a chip?? A tiny ding is more like it!
