Hi everyone,

up for sale is my Mert Tansu Gyuto that I recently traded.
A real laser!

Unfortunately, lasers are no longer for me ... I much prefer workhorses

Nonetheless, I wanted to try a "real" Tansu and it didn't disappoint. Simply an elegant, well made laser with great looks, a good performing blade and a spectacular handle!

- Handle: walnut grain stabilized, brass ferrule
- Dimensions: blade length 208 mm, blade height 51 mm, weight 162 g

Available for 590 EUR / 700 USD 520 EUR / 630 USD including shipping in the EU
International shipping we can discuss, but I would prefer EU offers.

The photos correspond to the current condition with freshly removed patina:



















Only trade options:

- Watanabe Aogami Honyaki
- Kamagata Usubas (Doi, Ikeda und co.)
- Shigefusa / Kato
- Customs Xerxes, Dalman, Raquin, Nguyen or similar (Gyutos, Sujihikis >250mm)

- Giantmouse Folder (GM5, GMP5, GM2, GMP2, GM1, GMP1... no"ACE" Folders)
- TRC South Pole Apo Finish

I hope for both our sakes you manage to sell it before the end of the month, but if not, I'm all over it.

I'm just as surprised. This is, in my opinion, a perfect example of Mert's fine work. If it were stateside I'd have a difficult time resisting.

You don't seem to understand how this flipping thing works... ;)
Kinda surprised this one isn't already gone as well; she looks like an elegant beauty. Maybe everyone's bank account looks as poor as mine at the moment? :D

My transaction with Iggy was positive, buy with confidence. :)
He's the scoreleader on the German KMS forum when it comes to market ratings...
