So, I have a few old work knives I've outgrown that I'm looking to give away to cooks who might be in need of starter J-knives and don't might getting used knives, warts and all. All of these are more than serviceable, but all have seen use inside a restaurant kitchen, so they aren't lookers.

I've got 3 270mm gyutos: a Misono UX-10 with scuffs and scratches; a Kikuichi Carbon Elite with a patina, some scuffs, and a slightly flatter profile than I seem to remember it coming with (let's say I meant to do that- in any event, I love this knife); and a Suisin High Carbon with a patina and a new tip courtesy of a run-in with a concrete floor. Pics at https://instagram.com/p/BSO_MvdA8F1/ .

Also up for grabs is a Fujiwara FKM honesuki, and a truly ...something... Tojiro white steel 240 k-tip gyuto in all its project knife glory.

Anyone know a cook who'd appreciate these? They've all served me well, so good homes are a must. CONUS only, please.

That is so kind of you. I would love to take one off your hands for a chef that I'm training. He just started learning sushi and his knife is really not up to par. Any would really make his day, that UX10 would probably last him a good couple of years.

Cheers. :)

Done! PM me your mailing address, and I'll try to get it out tomorrow.

Misono 270, Suisin 270, and Fujiwara FKM honesuki all boxed and ready to ship once I drag my butt to the post office tomorrow.

The Kikuichi and the Tojiro still need homes.

Aaaand that's the ballgame. Assuming I hear back from everyone who's claimed a knife with a mailing address, all the knives are spoken for. Thanks, y'all. This has been fun.

That's my hope too! I come from a tool-worshipping family: we all get sloppily sentimental about the inanimate objects that make up our world, so, while I'm glad to be helping the community and happy to be making some much-needed space, there have been a few tears too. The folks at the Post Office must think I'm insane. 🤡

My cousin is going to cooking school, so that Tojiro could do for him, if he qualifies :)

I would love to take anything you have available. I have no Japanese knives (only a german stainless) and would love the chance to play with something new if they haven't all gotten snatched up.!

What a cool idea for a thread section. Kudos to these folks for passing on their old knives!
