Manaka 246x56mm Gyuto
Blue#1 core, iron clad
Octagon rosewood handle

Original owner of this knife and used it maybe 3-4 times at home. I fully rounded/polished the spine and choil, and refinished the blade with natural stones and etch. The current finish is much smoother (significantly less drag) than the one that came with it out of the box. I got a bunch of new knives since refinishing this knife, so it's essentially been sitting in the box since.

This particular example is thinner than the previous B#2 one I had in the same size. The flat blade road is really nice for those that enjoy polishing. Tall, 50/50 grind, forward balanced blade, with thick spine coming out of the handle and an aggressive taper.

$400 shipped & insured within US (international I can cover the first $15, PM for details)
