I bet this listing takes the award for most slashes in a title.
So I'm throwing this up to see if there's any interest in it over the Heiji. This is a 260mm gyuto with a beautiful distal taper and an amazing convex grind. Cuts better than anything I've ever tried (lots of stuff from lasers to fatties). So why sell it? Because I can't get used to the fancy handle. This knife convinced me that though I love crazy high quality wood, I don't want a handle made of it. I prefer plain ho wood/buffalo horn handles. This one is ironwood, some silver metal (Nickel silver?), and buffalo horn.
I can post specs if you need them, but trust me, it's not something to really worry about with this knife. It's ground from thicker stock than Tilman's previous knives, so it has no flex (I think it's 2.8mm at the thickest point of the spine). The grind is amazing so cutting is effortless and stiction-free on basically everything I've tried. If you've read reviews of Tilman's knives (some from very tough critics), you are probably familiar with how nice they are. I'll probably order another of these without a handle sometime down the line when I get some spare cash.
I got this for $390 not including PP fees, etc...since it's basically new (original edge, original finish, used 2-3 times) and helps you avoid a 3-5 month wait, I'm asking $375 shipped CONUS with tracking. Please ask for insurance if you want it as I cannot afford to be responsible for uninsured packages should anything happen to them (I do pack safely and carefully).
The pics below are from Tilman himself. If you want some more, just let me know.
