    225 Gyuto W2 with hamon for sale

    This one started life a year ago as a 240. I have been sitting on it for a while, and have since learned about better profiles. This one was pretty flat, so i reshaped it and decided to finish it up. It is 225 on the edge, 242 from the bolster/ferrule. It is pretty thin, sitting at 2.16 coming out of the handle. it stays at 2mm until half way to the tip then has a distal taper to a fine tip. Handle is some of Mark's special koa with golden ironwood ferrule and buttcap, hippo ivory and black spacers.
    Specs
    Steel: W2 at roughly 62rc, differentially hardened with polished hamon.
    Blade length: 225mm on edge
    Blade width: 2.16mm
    Blade height: 45.5mm at heel
    Handle:
    Length:142mm total
    Height 23mm at ferrule/25mm at buttcap
    Width: 19mm at ferrule/ 24mm at buttcap.

    Price: $400

    The handle is not glued onto the blade right now, in case someone wants any modifications to the handle, that is why there are fingerprints/smudges on the blade. It will come all nice and shiny...also thinking of a few more etch cycles to make the hamon pop a bit better. Any questions, please ask
