    Up for grabs is this unicorn of a knife for me, Maumasi 235 gyuto. Pretty rare for a Maumasi to come up and even more rare in that Mareko doesnt make too many san mai knives. This knife has the best in hand feel ive ever experienced in a knife. The handle is super comfortable, the best ive used, edging out the Rader i used to own. The steel is cru forge v and is fantastic, gets really, really sharp and holds it very well. Very stiff knife, just about no flex, is a middleweight and very thin behind the edge. Features his “workhorse gentle convex” which glides through food. The measurements are 235x57 according to my ruler, but on the certificate it reads as 55 heel height. Weighs 232 grams and the balance sits right at a pinch grip. The knife has been used for a few meals at home and ive done a quick polish job on it to remove some patina. Its been touched up on a shobu suita as well. Includes a soft camo knife case and certificate. I would love to keep the knife, but i got my eyes set on some other things outside of the knife world. Price is $2200 shipped in the conus, intl pays for shipping. Thank you for looking!

    That’s the Lord being kind to me after the rust bucket fiasco. Note that I waited ... two deep breaths before responding, and didn’t say “SOLD” in my response. See ... an old dog can learn a few new tricks.

    Brian is my idol, I would like to be able to make buying decisions as quickly. It is a good thing he is on buying moratorium, otherwise we would all be in trouble:LOL:

    I’m trying to think of an appropriate penance. The way I figure it is that “the Lord will understand”.

    I’m scared. A scorn @Brian Weekley talking biblical. Bst will feel his wrath. Hopefully there will be something left over for the rest of us. Lol

    JK. Great score!

    Dammit, I would've probably broken my knife purchasing embargo for this one. Great grab by BW.

    You can but I have a 9 yr old that has first claim. I can just see him at “Show-n-Tell”. He could probably prep a few pineapples with it!

    How many knives does a 9 year old need? You are robbing him of the joy of searching and researching and agonizing by dumping all these knives on him:LOL:
