    Kiyoshi Kato 240 Standard Gyuto Passaround

    Sounds like maybe somebody needs to do a spreadsheet or pivot table or something...

    Kiyoshi Kato 240 Standard Gyuto Passaround

    @CiderBear- @labor of love will shoot you a PM when he's ready to ship and ask for an address. You can use whichever is most convenient for you and where you think delivery would go the smoothest. Then after a week of use, you just reach out to the next person in line for their shipping...

    Kiyoshi Kato 240 Standard Gyuto Passaround

    @SilverSwarfer put the original edge on it. Not sure who else has touched it up in between, but I’m sure unless it’s gone through a full progression since, most of the base work was his.

    Kiyoshi Kato 240 Standard Gyuto Passaround

    I have a Marko WH 270 and obviously several Kato, including the one on the passaround. The Marko WH are obviously related in design, or rather inspired by, but they are slightly less extreme. My example has less taper, thinner overall spine, thinner grind (less meat aka steel in the upper part...

    Knife Tatoo

    Ex-chef friend has a small French-style gyuto tattoo on his forefinger between the knuckle and the main joint (sorry anatomy terms are hard). Discreet but classy looking.

    Kiyoshi Kato 240 Standard Gyuto Passaround

    @Corradobrit1 It's currently with Cloudsmoker. There was a minor shipping delay getting it to him, but it arrived last week I believe so things should be moving along smoothly now.

    Whoops, my mistake, should have taken more than just a passing glance on my phone. Still a good looking stone though!

    Wondered if you ended up with this one. Craig sent me some videos of it action, looks good. Love my nakayama shiro suita, hope this one works out for you.

    One of my favorites. Also happens to be one of my best looking. Hakka iromono.

    SOLD Comet 2c63 260mm Honyaki Gyuto

    Big knives are awesome. They can do everything smaller gyutos can do, but more. Grind and distal taper can really impact how bigger knives handle and perform and Trey's Comet knives truly excel in both these categories.

    Yoshikane SKD vs SLD

    One note to add- the SLD damascus is the tallest line at the heel, if that’s important to you. However, the SLD lines from Masashi are equally tall if not taller and half the price.

    WTS Marius Smide Cleaver and Gyuto

    Gyuto still available. Open to offers. I'm going to the post office tomorrow morning so this could be in the mail soon.

    Kiyoshi Kato 240 Standard Gyuto Passaround

    Not to me. ;) Enjoyment is top of my list of deciding factors. But to offer my anecdotal observations, I have both WH (one from 2015, one probably older) and standard (white). I can feel the difference in sharpening, but its really pretty minimal unless you’re going through a full progression...

    Kiyoshi Kato 240 Standard Gyuto Passaround

    Just wanted to add that according to the shop and the receipt, this one is supposedly Blue steel. Take that with whatever grains of salt you want.

    WTS Halcyon Forge 270mm Damascus Twist gyuto, western style handle

    There are a few more 270s out there, I used to own one, but none quite like this. A rare beast indeed. Wish I could swing it. GLWS.
