    FS: A freebie (with shipping.)

    My wife's family bought this knife in Japan probably about 30 years ago -- nothing particularly special, decent carbon gyuto with western handle. I don't know the maker (should be identifiable from the kanji.) The tip has been broken off, but otherwise it's in good shape.

    I'd like this to go to someone that wants to regrind/reprofile it, and hopefully rehandle it as a test project. All I'd ask is that you pay shipping (should be $8.50 via priority mail) and share your work on the forum.

    Anyone?

    how about I trade you a coffee mug for it, one I've made, and we each pay shipping for our respective items?

    I'll do it and then send it back to you or do a pass around with it?

    I'd like it! But I say send it to Mr Gray. I'll bet the mug you get in return is cool.
