    Up for sale is my 270 Kato gyuto, this knife performs great but is a little long for my needs, i have polished out the vertical grind marks to the best of my ability, it comes with a home made saya, which is quite loose and needs a hole drilled. i would like to get $535 USD and will go halves in the shipping from Australia
    Thanks for looking

    What's the actual edge length? 270? I'm so tempted here, but all the comparisons of cutting performance I've heard have been to Shigs. I never thought Shigs were that great to begin with...

    Meh. I never did, either. I am curious about the Kato though.

    My 240 Kato is the best cutter I have, compared to:

    Shigefusa thin gyuto
    Kono HD
    bluewayjapan "special" Sakai Yusuke discussed here
    Takeda gyuto
    Carter funayuki
    DT ITK
    Various less well-known (but superb) cutters: Tadafusa, Gihei, etc.

    I'd give a couple bucks to watch this guy grind these things---seems like magic to me.

    That sounds a bit more promising to me. I haven't really tried Carters, but I've heard really good things about their cutting ability.

    Hey TK, wanna get the Kato and let me try it out when I come to Southern California?
