Thread: DT 240 Western Gyuto

    DT 240 Western Gyuto

    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.

    Thanks!
    Karl

    Sure! I just didn't know it was going to be the same since the knife I sold was from the first batch of ITK western gyutos.

    I edited the original post, changed the steel type and removed the discussion related to the error.
