    For Sale - One of a Kind Hiro AS Gyuto

    I have for sale a 240mm Hiromoto Aogami Super Steel (AS) Gyuto that's had it's blade thinned (for performance), spine & choil rounded/smoothed over, and etched (for looks) as well as a custom (hidden tang) iron wood handle installed. The hidden tang handle style brings the weight balance point forward just the way it is on wa handles, it's very nice with mosaic copper/nickel silver pin and a copper spacer was used between the wood and bolster for accent.

    The knife was originally made for myself but times are tough and it's up for sale now.

    This is a one of a kind configuration that's had a ton of work put into it, built to kick ass and look good while doing it!


    Price - $425 USD (shipping to CONUS included - international will be charged actual costs)

    Please shoot me a PM if you're interested, thanks!

    I forgot to mention that I just sharpened it up fresh so it's ready to go to work.

    Damn rent is due so no dice here. Looks like a ton of work, and the price is a very good deal.

    The amount of work you put into this you should put your own makers mark next to hiromotos

    I should say that the video was made before Dave worked his magic. While sharp you see it glides through the onions effortlessly, it's clunky and snaps the ends of the carrots with a pop. Since it has returned it no longer does that. It's a laser beam now. This knife has been in service daily at my kitchen for about a year and a half now and I've only needed to sharpen it 4 times really.

    The knife Dave is offering here is reaaaallly good. I would buy it myself if I didn't already have 2 240mm gyutos in the works. Somebody buy this now! You're going to love it!
