I've decided to sell my DT ITK Western Gyuto.
The blade steel is AEB-L and the handle material is black lacewood.
I got this knife in a trade from another forum member.
When I received this knife it had a few scratches and a small bend in the heel.
It kinda looked like the heel was slammed into a pit of an avocado and twisted a little.
After the first sharpening the bend is almost gone. I'm pretty sure the second sharpening will eliminate it all together.
When I first received the knife I was not happy with the feel of the handle so I spent 3 or so hours sanding it down until it felt less cumbersome. I finished sanding it at 12000 grit and it now feels great in my hand.
I noticed that there are still some photos of this same knife in the BST section so I am not going to post any at this time.
I would like to get $400 for this knife, that includes shipping and insurance to most locations.
If you would like to see some pictures of the knife in question please just ask.
