    F/S Dave Martell Hiromoto 240mm Gyuto

    Hey everybody,

    This is the first time I've ever sold a knife and it is only because I have to. I had an unexpected expense come up and unfortunately there isn't enough in the piggy bank. I thought long and hard and if I had to choose one knife that was worth something that I could bare to let go (no offense Dave), it would be my Hiromoto with a custom handle from Dave. This was from his first run of re-handles and sadly enough has never even been used. It still has the original famous Dave (no relation to the BBQ joint) sharpening job. I also picked up a Marko poplar saya and that will be bundled with the knife. Long story short it is in brand new condition except for a couple of my finger prints.

    I am asking $225 for the knife and saya shipped to anywhere in the continental U.S.A.










    Thanks for looking and sorry I am not looking for any trades at this time.

    Regards,

    Pete

    That's an awesome deal! Someone should get on this! Marko's sayas are awesome, by the way. And he's not taking orders for them any more.

    What wood is the handle? Has it held up well?

    The wood is Redwood Lace Burl and has been oiled regularly so it's in good shape.

    No, this was long before thinning became popular.

    Man, this is a good deal. I just got my thinned Hiro back from Dave, and I almost want to pull the trigger.

    The saya and handle alone are worth the asking price.

    Good luck with the sale, Pete.

    Expenses are never fun, but unexpected expenses are the worst!
