    Rader 240 gyuto

    Alright guys... I listed this one a couple months ago. Things fell threw and I decided to keep it. Now its back up. I am asking for $600 (this covers shipping and paypal). 52100 steel.... I'm sure I will regret this but I need to do it. This knife was made by Michael as an "ITK series". I believe only 5 or 10 were made. It does not have his MS stamp on it because it was not a custom and I believe his wife helped a little with the handles if I am not mistaken......

    It is the original forced patina that Michael Rader put on them before selling. It has never been taken off.

    The Rader ITK-type knives I saw had a mustard patina (I think that's what his wife helped with.)
