    WTB - Cheap 300mm Gyuto

    Hi Folks!

    I'm looking to pick up a used, cheap, and thin 300mm/12 inch stainless western gyuto for a co-worker. Fit and finish are not terribly important, neither is condition of the blade (I can sharpen, profile, and polish it for him if needed). A new Fujiwara FKM in that length is around $100, which is about the max I'd want to spend, but if possible I'd like to get something a bit higher test second-hand since it's going to be a work beater. Let me know if you've got anything you wouldn't mind parting with and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

    Thanks!

    12" stainless K-Sab. Not exactly what I was shooting for, but it'll do and the price was good. And it's still an upgrade over his busted-ass Messermeister as far as I'm concerned, lol.

    Make sure you knock that finger guard back to the same angle as the primary bevel. Then, you've got yourself a winner!
