    NOS: Moritaka 270mm Gyuto

    I bought this knife about three or four years ago at the height of my purchasing craze along with about 15 or so other knives that all arrived in the same two week span. Oddly enough, I set this guy in a box which the wife later filled with donation items for Goodwill. While cleaning out the garage yesterday, I started going through boxes and found this guy still in his original box. At any rate, the knife has only been out of the box twice and NEVER used in any sense of the word.

    Size: 270mm
    Handle: None
    Steel: Aogami #2
    Finish: Kurouchi

    $180.00 Shipped CONUS Paypal Preferred

    Thank you for looking.

    Hermes, I have a few Ho wood / buffalo handles left over from days past. I'd be more than willing to throw one on if you'd like.

    The grind isn't perfect but its far from the typical bad grind we see in Moritakas, on a scale of 1-10, its about a 7. I ended having to fix two knives out of the 3 Moritakas (purchased a total of 7 including this one) I have purchased over the years but I wouldn't bother with this one.
