Glestain 21 cm Gyuto
Got that one with the “tip” broken. By that I mean it was 24cm knife…once…
When I got it I thought I could keep it, so it was personal project.
So I fixed it. Sharpened, thinned, remodeled handle a little, but this was a task that overpowered me. I surrendered. This damn buttcap is my worst knife-nightmare. Who and how thought of installing this to japanese knife? The balance is a drama. I know its possible to remove it, I just dont have the tools required.
Polished just enough to make this knife usable. Check pics.
Saya is homemade, quite polished. Fits quite tight. I like woodwork so it was made with love.
Reason for selling? I know this is not what youre regular salesman would have told ya
I don’t like stainless. And if I need one, that would not be Glestain
I honestly have to say, the dimples are working. I was sceptical but in fact nothing sticks. So thats a big plus. When it comes to cutting its OK. The flat side gets stuck a little, which is a little annoying.
The edge it takes is OK, but really, what can I know? How it holds the edge, I dont know cause recently I found out I cannot remove wire edge so my opinion is unimportant. Just remember: I cannot sharpen either!

Little used. With homemade saya. Bought at Maksims Gathering last year - or was it this year?
This knife is quite good cutter, I used it to prepare vegetables for Christmas and I really like it, very similar to Shigefusa. Not much sticks thanks to the grind but there is some wedging.
Selling cause I just have too many knives and don’t use it often enough to justify having. And too good blade to keep home.
Recently thinned but sides are not polished [photos]
Very very thin behind edge.

This knife is fully refurbished now.
You can check what I did to it here:
Blade was thinned like hell, polished and sharpened. Saya got polished.
The only thing is not done properly is handle installation. The only way I could do it is by glueing it, and I know this is a no-no for some folks.
With the amount of work I did, and new chestnut handle [you can get the standard too, if you wish]
Payment using paypal. I can take paypal costs, but buyer pays postage. Im not sure whether I have all the original boxes.
Open for trading, looking for single bevels.
