    I picked this up BNIB from a fellow Canadian lefty in the summer. See original thread below:

    https://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/threads/lefty-marko-260-gyuto.42009/

    Used lightly at home amongst other knives in the rotation, I’d keep it if I didn’t need to make some room for some knives that are coming home from the spa soon.

    $550 USD includes PayPal and insured shipping/tracking to most worldwide destinations (I can ship just about anywhere)

    SPECS
    260x52mm KS profile gyuto
    A2 steel, asymmetric convex grind
    235g (balance just slightly forward of the choil)
    Koa D-shape lefty handle with bog oak and mokume ferrule
    Includes a leather sheath which Marko said he’d consider a second (there is a stitch which appears to be slightly larger than the others by the thread for the pin, picture below)

    These are current pictures (A2 steel doesn’t seem to patina very much). I’ll upload some from my Instagram when I first got it shortly.

    If interested please send a PM and we can discuss, I’ll also be listing a couple JNS jnats tomorrow, so could do a package deal if interested.

    Thanks for looking.

    One hell of a looker and a lefty too which makes it my kind of knife. Just too long for my kitchen. GLWS.

    Is it just the orientation of the handle that makes this a lefty? The grind looks universal as opposed to lefty balanced.
    Just a matter of opinion but I think the lefty D shape handle actually feels pretty good in right hand use.
    And with that profile I suspect this 260mm gyuto would feel more like a 245 to 250mm in hand
