    I offer a buy back guarantee if your not happy with your purchase. Its a great knife so I'll be happy to have it back. You just cover paypal expenses (if there are any on a re-fund?) and shipping back to me. - Im also only a home cook. - may be open to partial trades. (240 gyuto's only plz) - May close the thread if i change my mind and want to keep it.

    Shiraki R2 (Tosa Grind)
    Bought off KNS - its 1 of 2 R2 blades made by shiraki i know of. the other is a R2 Damascus.
    Bought at the 2017 Black friday sale. - looking for $500
    Blade came with a scotch bright finish, and it was a perfect candidate for a mirror polish, Grind is done in such a way that it wont stick very easily to food. You can tell the effort that tosa put into this grind by the choil shot, and how beautifully even it is.
    Oh, we had a cat, it got to the foam in the box and clawed it up when I left it open a while back. - If it bothers you i have more foam (White), and will make a new handle insert part. or I can wrap the foam insert.

    Still have friction fit saya. (No pin)
    No alteration to grind has been done
    No sharpening has been done
    Polishing only. (Polishing kills the edge. Needs to be sharpened for use)
    47mm at the heel. "Sakai sizing"
