    Beautiful Morihei Akimitsu 240mm gyuto. Blade is made from ginsan damascus and has absolutely breathtaking pattern and texture. This was one of 8 sold this year and was purchased from Evan at Strata. Comes with custom kiri box as well. I’ve handled and stared at it some, but it’s only been used to cut up a couple pieces of fruit one time. Passes easily for new. Really hard to explain how beautiful this is in person and pics can’t show the detail. Probably the most intricate, amazing damascus I’ve seen. Polished by Mr. Akimitsu Oguro, president of Morihei and is the first Morihei brand knife. Mr. Oguro learned under a master sword polisher for 15 years and it shows. Great chance to own an amazing blade. Purchased for $900 from Evan. Will sell for $600 shipped. SPF
    Measures:
    242mm heel to tip
    51mm heel height
    170 grams

    Phew! I was running out of rational arguments against a purchase.
