    Aritsugu A-type 270 Gyuto

    Well, it is time to start unloading some knives. Here is a thinned 270 A-type, thinned for a righty (because thats the way the knife is ground. Knife comes with a saya. Asking $200 PP and shipped.

    What is the actual blade length on this? Can I get a photo of the spine? Just trying to understand the thickness or reason it needs to be thinned. Thanks

    (I've never had an 'A-type', and I can't speak for this one, but)...Aritsuga A-type gyutos have a reputation of arriving NIB with barely any of the final grind or finished edge on board, of being a real 'be-yatch' to work on the stones, and for being as close to 99/1 as you'ld see in any production gyuto.
    They also have the reputation of being amazing workhorses once tuned up.

    I really like the F&F on Kyoto Aritsugus.

    I don't know how the A-type gained the reputation for being so difficult to get an edge. After owing a 240mm for 1 and 1 /2 years, I find it's no more difficult to put a razor's edge on it than any of my other knives. So for anyone interested in this knife, don't be put off about any difficulties with sharpening this knife.

    I actually like the polish on the thinned blade road. Go figure. Up against the "brushed" machine finish it gives a yin-yang appearance to it. Then again, I'm easily dazzled by nonsense.
