    WTB Kato 210-220 STD/WH Gyuto BNIB

    Standard is what kato normally makes. The length is normally 5-10mm shorter than the stated length. WH is the profile that he makes exclusive for JNS. They run 10-15mm longer than the stated length

    It’s a 130mm ajikiri/kodeba. Good for small things like mackerel. Would be too small for any thing bigger than that. kasumi ajikiri are not very common but it isn’t cheap either. You can find kasumi 150-180mm deba in this price range too from shigefusa
