Thread: 240mm Shigefusa kasumi gyuto with matching saya

  1. #11
    Thanks. It was almost completely blue after a week of cutting bacon everyday. Now it has evened out and is mostly gray, you have to turn it to see flashes of blue.

    I agree with the reactivity. I haven't had a problem with mine. I keep mine in a hotel pan under the line at work. One day at the end of my shift I pulled out the pan and saw water droplets on the blade, don't know how long they had been there, but it was at least an hour or more. Wiped off fine, no corrosion. After you have a solid patina, they are really not a problem at all. No worse than anything else. The problem you run into is if they don't have a patina, even a finger print will rust. I have cleaned mine with Flitz and even that leaves enough patina to prevent it from being super reactive.

    I'm gonna bump this one up again. Somebody's gotta want a 240 Shig, right?

    I just sent an offer to someone who PM'ed me, but PM me about it if you're really interested. I may have a tiny bit more wiggle room on the price if that helps.

    Dang... I wouldn't drop the price. I'd keep it instead.

    I was close to it at this point. I only ended up going down a tiny bit more, which I didn't like doing, but I'll live. I can't really justify having two 240 gyutos around if that's not even the size I want. All I really want for what I cook is an 80mm paring, 210 (semi)stainless gyuto or petty, and a 270 gyuto. I don't really need or want much else, so that's why this knife was up for sale. Wait...I do want all three of the main single bevel styles, but that's far off in the future.

    Anyways, this knife is SOLD.
