    Up for your consideration (prices include shipping CONUS; international buyers we can talk):

    1. Kippington 240mm Laser Honyaki gyuto (sold)

    The condition of the blade: Lightly used in home environment, used it to prepared a few meals, sharpened it 2 or 3 times and thinned just a hair bit.

    The handle: Ebony wood with Mammoth spacer, the handle was put on by epoxy, due to how fragile Mammoth spacers are, I wanted to make sure the handle will stay resilient against in case of impacts.

    The measurements:

    Blade length (heel to tip): 245mm
    Blade height at heel:55mm
    Total weight: 213g

    Price: $450

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    2. Toyama 240mm SS clad blue steel gyuto

    The condition: Barely used in home environment, touched on fine stone one time. prepared 2 meals with it. I am selling it because I love patina too much.

    The handle: I honestly don't remember what wood they are. The inspiration of the handle came from customer Feedback about the SS clad Toyama. As most people are looking for the heavier Carbon clad ones, I wanted to simulate the carbon clad feeling by doing the best I can from handle maker point of view. I chose the lighter wood material and added in the very minimum to shift the point balance of the blade up to where the beginning of the kanji is.
    The handle installment is done by beeswax, so if you like to replace the handle, it will be easy work.


    The measurements:

    Blade length (heel to tip):242mm
    Blade height at heel:54mm
    Total weight:213g

    Price: $450

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    3. Munetoshi 240mm honyaki gyuto

    Condition: lightly used in home environment, cooked a hand full of meals, touched up on stone 3~4 times, polished to work finish.

    The handle: over the tang western handle with burl and ebony wood. The inspiration of the handle came from KKF. After a discussion rather this is a Wa-handle or Yo-handle. It was my first proudly announced western over the tang handle. It's a very good functional piece.
    The handle installment is done by beeswax, so if you like to replace the handle, it will be easy work.


    The measurements:

    Blade length (heel to tip):250mm
    Blade height at heel:50mm
    Total weight:210g

    Price: $550

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    4. Shiraki 300mm Blue 2 honyaki Takohiki Sakimaru with mammoth tooth spacer handle.

    Condition: BNIB, I am selling it because I have no skill to use such expensive piece. I am purchasing a cheaper single bevel to learn sharpening, and hopefully one day soon, I will get to honyaki single bevels.

    The Handle: Rare wood (I can’t remember) with Mammoth tooth spacer made by DPhambaldes.

    The measurements:
    Blade length (heel to tip):290mm
    Blade height at heel:35mm
    Total weight:261g

    Price:$925

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    5. Shiraki 165mm deba (sold)

    Condition: Used with defects, the blade is moderately used but has a warp since day 1 when it arrived from the seller.

    The handle: one of my earliest work. Stabilized Russian burl wood.

    The meassurements:

    Blade length (heel to tip):168mm
    Blade height at heel:52mm
    Total weight:32og

    Price: $50


    I will upload photos here tomorrow, thanks for look
