    I bought this a while ago mostly to satisfy my curiosity as I read these were being discontinued. I have no idea if that’s true or not, but this one has been out of stock since I bought this. It’s a pretty cool knife, there’s just too much overlap with others I have so letting it go. Nice and heavy but still thin behind the edge. Shiraki forged /Tosa sharpened.


    Measurements are 275x55, 290g. Steel is iron clad Blue 2. Handle is K&S ebony with metal spacer and blonde horn. It has not been sharpened, only stropped on leather and is super clean. Includes original saya and K&S packaging (which is very nice btw). Let me know if there are any questions.


    The photos are from when I got it but the knife looks the same now. Happy to take some new photos if someone wants though.


    $470 including PayPal, insured shipping (CONUS only). That’s what I have in it. Thanks!

    No trades please

    OK ... let me get this straight. I bought your Two Sticks Gyuto so that you could buy the Jikko Gyuto that I’m also lusting after. Isn’t KKF great ... the place where everybody’s dreams come true!
