One of my earliest quality knives from a western maker. Who could have guessed what this knife got started. A rarely posted Gyuto from Tillman Leder. I’ve used it a few times and have loved it every time its turn came up. Problem is that it deserves a home that can give it more use. The handle alone is a work of art. One of the nicest in my collection. Believed to be Honduran Rosewood with a marbled horn. Steel is believed to be Niolox. I’m looking for $485 shipped and insured for this knife. Canadians can have it for a bit less because I save a bit on shipping.

Specs are …

Blade length … 259mm
Edge length … 245mm
Depth at heel … 53mm
Thickness measured at spine … 3.14mm at heel, 2.22mm mid blade, 1.16mm 1” from tip
Weight … 220gms

A few pics …

I couldn’t resist adding the Tillman’s “welcome to the family meal”. I still remember that roasted lamb shoulder. A fitting accompaniment for the Tillman.

Namaxy - I think he'll let it go for $485+Lamb+shipping cost ... you get a lovely cold lamb shoulder + an amazing blade for free ...

Tilman's in the wild are such a rare find ... I have one otherwise would be all over this "lamb shoulder" deal! FWIW you won't be able to buy it direct for close to that price ... Also FWIW I believe he only uses Niolox so pretty sure that is the material ...

GLWS ... stupid good deal from an amazing seller (& obviously great lamb cook)!

Tilman uses niolox for his stainless knives. He also makes his carbon steel knives in 1.2442. Knife doesn’t appear to be stainless. I love these and own one myself.Brian is a great guy btw so buy with confidence
