    Takeda 24 cm AS wa-gyuto

    This is one of a special run Takeda made a few years ago with a special order profile. Unlike Takeda's usual gyuto, the heel is only 49 mm, and the blade has much less "belly" than his other wa-gyutos. The heel to tip length is 250 mm. The handle is Takeda's standard rosewood.

    It has been gently used in a home environment, and will ship in the original box.

    $280 shipped insured to CONUS addresses. Please PM for payment details.

    Thanks for looking,

    Rick

    It is flatter than a regular Takeda. Here are a couple of pics I just took to show the profile a little better.

    A Takeda and Shigefusa in the same week Rick? If you are letting these go, I can only imagine what you have in reserve! Good luck on the sale. I'm tempted myself, but you have enough of my money for one week.

    Funny I missed this...I was randomly going to send you a PM a few weeks ago to see if you still had this Takeda and if you were interested in selling it.
