    Geshhin Uraku Stainless 270mm gyuto.
    Used a few times only. Sharpened once. No saya--but I do have the saya pin :p
    Grabbed this because I wanted to try a Uraku. A solid user. The pics in the original thread are better than my pic. Got a great deal on it here:
    https://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/threads/gesshin-uraku-270q.44392/

    Passing it along for $110 shipped (US). (I paid $125--told ya it was a good deal!--and it runs $185 new from JKI but with saya.)

    A solid wa handle workhorse with decent convexing and distal taper. Absolutely perfect for a first stainless knife. GLWS!!

    Aus-10. It’s really tough! I have a 210 that I use as my (really nice) beater, and which my wife used. She’ll even cut things on ceramic with it once in a while and it never blinks. I’ve put somewhat aggressive edges on it and it’s never microchipped once.

    Really really good deal here. I just cannot justify it right now. This is a no brainer. Someone snatch this up.
