    FS: A freebie (bar shipping) II

    I have almost identical knife to the one in the recent thread. Vintage Japanese carbon from Masakane if I remember it correctly.

    Would prefer it to go to somebody who could make a good use of it.

    Please post in this thread.

    A passaround would be cool. Is it in good shape? Or do you just want to donate it? I have always been interested in what a vintage Japanese knife is like, the oldest one I have is only 15 years old at most.

    I got it as new and it has seen very little use. It's thinly ground and cuts relatively well, but it is what it is, inexpensively made, stamped knife. Have no idea what steel it is, probably some simple carbon steel. It gets pretty sharp though.

    It would be nice to go to somebody who could really use it, to be honest, but that might be much to ask.

    See if you can get up with voodoomajik. I think he has some guys at his job that could use it. He expressed interest when I did my "pay it forward" knife kit.

    Sounds like she could use another knife. Are you coming to ECG by any chance?

    I have a chef friend who got laid-off recently after 8 years of service at the same place, and the day before he was talking to me about getting in to j-blades so this might cheer him up.

    I will have then a different one for him. This one is with a Western handle.

    I can most certainly find a happy home for it, Will be used everyday. My concern is about 8 of our 80 cooks put ANY effort into caring for their knives. I'm still trying to get the apprentices to value a well maintained blade. They would rather smash it off a diamond steel...
