    Hey all-

    Looking to trade straight across a Kato Wh 240 for a Kato std. Picked up mine in a trade a while ago, tried her out and absolutely love it, but it’s a bit large for my tastes (247ish) and I know the std comes in around 230. Circa 2015 (?) JNS with insane burnt walnut handle (back when the stock was tipity-top). This one has been used a few times, and just touched up by Mr Magic Hands himself, Jon at JKI so it’s in better than new shape imo.

    Not including trade value as I think the trade is specific enough. Only entertaining this trade, not willing to sell. Used is fine within reason.

    Thanks!

    I only want to mention that adding height and weight may may help.

    Think thats burnt Chestnut not Walnut. Its easily my favorite wood and JNS's D-shape version is one of the best of its kind. Total package here.

    You’re right- not quite sure how that slipped.

    And yes, this one is a real fine example. Don’t know how, but the older ones from 3 or so years and going back further were just better. Tighter grain, darker. All that.
