Hey KKF,

I am selling two of my knives here. Click in for higher-res pictures.

First up is a gyuto by Mert with wrought iron cladding

The knife was used for 2 full meals (2 onions, some carrots, a portion of sprouts and maybe 2-3 bellpeppers), and was never stropped or sharpened. Hence, the knife is close to new, modulo the patina from the onions. The wrought iron clad is really nice, and has a cloudy texture (see pics below). The handle is a very beautiful high contrast piece of ironwood. The knife is an exceptional cutter, has a very slight right bias (not really noticeable on the board), and tapers really thinly towards edge and tip. Mert described it as a workhorse, but I don't really agree and find this a quite good mid-weight blade.

Next up is a gyuto by Birgersson with iron clad [SOLD]

I bought the knife here

and have only used the knife once for one meal. Hence, the knife is exactly like in the condition I received it in from Matteo. The knife has a working finish (nothing crazy), and came with some slight scratches. From the cutting feel I really enjoy this knife and would rate it among my best 5 cutters. Despite the beefy spine, the knife tapers strongly and glides totally effortlessly through foods. I am selling it only because I have a custom coming in from Birgersson in May.
