FS in Canada: 240 Takeda Kiritsuke / Gyuto + unicorn magnum pepper mill + thermapen
I say Kiritsuke/Gyuto because while it has the kiritsuke profile, it is a double bevel.
The previous owner put a great edge on it, so incredibly thin and sharp. I used it only at home for light use and it needs another edge but I haven't sharpened it, and probably won't since I am selling it. The knife is in great shape. One thing to note is that where the blade meets the handle, there is a big glob of glue. I think thats just how takeda does things.
I got this from another member here for 250US but after shipping and paypal fees and conversion, came out to 300 CDN (I hate paypal so much).
I'd like to sell for 250CDN (+ shipping and insurance if you need).
I also have a brand new red thermapen (fold out). I got a great deal on it for $70 thanks to a member on here, so i will sell it for the same price. brand new in box.
Also selling Unicorn Magnum Plus peppermill, brand new in box. Got it from the deal on this forum and had to get it shipped to the US and brought it back with me. $35 for that.
I am located in Toronto but can ship things if needed.
EDIT: also have a BNIB set of tojiro all metal kitchen shears....let me know if interested...never used it
No chance of shipping things to the US?
I'd prefer to sell it local or within Canada but if nobody wants it, I'll gladly ship it stateside. What are you interested in?
One reason I prefer local is that I get cash...I don't use paypal much and I hate getting dinged on their conversion fees with us/canada. Also shipping in general is more expensive in Canada so might not be worth it for the buyer.
Edit: I made a mistake on the thermapen price..sorry, will edit.
I was interested in the mistake on the thermapen price

Thanks, yeah I've used EMT and its so much more convenient for person to person transfers! Amazing stuff.
Your mailbox is full, so I'm sending a reply to your PM here, hope you don't mind:
Great I will buy both the Thermapen and Unicorn grinder from you and yes we do have a car and will actually be in the city Friday night. If you get back to me with your info maybe we can hook up tonight. BTW, you live close to Len (echerub) in case you didn't know!
Also, are you interested in buying any knives from me? I have a few I'm going to list very shortly and I can bring 'em if you want a look. I have a Dave Martell 300mm 01 steel sujihiki with old growth redwood handle and Hawaiian signature wood ferrule, Hiromoto AS 240mm gyuto with Dave Martell spalted maple re-handle, Hiromoto AS 300mm sujihiki with Dave Martell afzelia burl re-handle, Devin Thomas custom ladder pattern paring knife with snakewood handle and Ichimonji (original, not Kikuichi knockoff) TKC 240mm slightly used gyuto with rounded choil and spine, and a like new Tojiro DP honesuki boning knife.
I'm selling these because I'm leaving the industry and going back to school to finish my CA, I'm only keeping a few of my very favourites for home use!
In case you get back to me after I've already left for Toronto, you can also text me at 905-544-0141.
Edit, I meant we will be in TO Thursday night (tonight)!
Sorry there were a couple other people trying to PM as well. I have cleared out my inbox.
If I wasn't saving up for something sparkly for my sweetheart, I'd be on that Takeda. Love Takeda's knives.
Well... I keep coming back to check this, hoping hoping hoping someone will pick it up and stop me from thinking about it
