    For sale burrfection gyuto knife by Sakai Takayuki.

    Steel blue 2 with stainless steel cladding
    Edge lenght 240mm
    Heel height 48,80mm
    Weight 144gr
    Spine at the heel 2mm
    Spine 10mm from the tip 0.8mm
    Handle material teak with buffalo horn
    Comes with the box.

    I got this from exchange of hand tools. It is new, no cutting or touchups, few scratches on the blade(the cladding appears to be real soft). I am selling it because it is way too light for my taste and the profile just isnt for me. I would like to have 150$ include shipping to EU, elsewhere +25$.

    Do you know if Ryky (burrfection) is the sharpener for this knife?

    May have been a facetious question.

    The last rope cutting video I saw went over 1000 Mark I believe. I know he is not popular here, but I like his videos, they are not always correct but none the less useful still.

    Feeling about burrfection aside (it was discussed enough to lock the threads) no one here will say this is a bad knife for the price. Blue 2 ks style by Sakai ...
    Let the op sell the knife.

    How thin is this behind the edge? Compared to other lasers like Ashi, Yusuke etc.?

    Thanks?

    Yes, it would help, thanks. Maybe you can measure it 1mm above the edge.

    Guys $150 ... give it to a sous.
    You know it's a laser, in blue2. Even tanaka are $200. Probably a great value knife ... another ks clone as you now Ricky loves ks.

    This could also complete someone's ks collection. Ks/miz ks/moritaka ks/Ikeda/ shiabata ks / Sakai yusuke/ ... now Ricky ks Takayuki

    I had Sakai Yusuke(swedish stainless) as my first j-knife. I used it only a handful of times, the laser+lightness wasnt my thing. This is bnib and the cladding seems to be as soft as in the Yusuke(wipe with towel and light scratches). I can do some cutting, but it wouldnt be any use because I have no comparison with better lasers. So if some wants it, it is here for a while before I decide to gift it away to relatives :D

    I’m sure this would sell at your original asking price on Reddit. Look up chefknifeswap
