    WTB/WTT for a Yo-Handled Shigefusa Gyuto

    Hey everyone woke up this morning and just really wanted a Yo-Shig. This is a complete long shot but looking for a Yo-handled Shigefusa Gyuto (any size 180-240mm).

    Looking to buy or trade for it.

    Have some interesting things I could be willing to trade: 240mm DT ITK 52100, Will Catcheside 240mm, 240mm JNS Kato, Kitaeji Santoku (might owe Smurf this one though since I didn't get him the last one I had), Kitaeji Nakiri

    Not just yet, but woke up with a craving to try a Yo-Shig. I think it was because I missed a Kitaeji Gyuto two days ago due to a merchant processing issue so the Shig Fever is extra strong

    Mike, Mike... 'woke up with a[nother] craving' sort of says it all. What tomorrow?

    Yo-gyuto Shigs are one I've never been tempted to buy. They look great until you get to the handle part. Don't understand the allure

    Recently been hankering for a bit of western handles (not sure why either) and keep hearing that the Yo-Shigs are very different than Wa-Shigs with that we have the perfect storm for Shig-Fever haha =)

    If you want different, you could just chase some KU instead, non? `

    I know the feeling! It's kind of fun chasing unicorns.
