I bought this tansu honyaki earlier in the year from this thread: SOLD - Mert Tansu 125sc 250mm honyaki western gyuto

I later clarified with the seller, after looking through Mert’s instagram, that it’s 26c3 (see attached image of his post). It’s also about 245mm from tip to heel.

The profile is very interesting, closer to a laser in grind, and with a French tip. It’s a great knife with some awesome visible banding on the hamon, and I’ve used it a couple dozen times but it’s just not right for me.

Trade value around what I paid: $900 USD

Looking for a few things, preferably workhorses and honyakis but flexible depending on maker, and also willing to sell or trade + cash in either direction. CONUS only for now:

- Kato WH gyuto
- Kamon
- Comet gyuto honyakis
- Comet nakiri
- Catcheside gyuto or nakiri
- Raquin gyuto
- Dalman gyuto honyaki or cleavers
- Xerxes gyuto
- Kippington WH, depending on profile
- make an offer
